Fraction Remaining Equals 1/128th

During my first half-life
I was too happy
to become tired.

In my second half-life
I wore flannel
to enhance my masculinity.

In my third half-life
I cradled a knotted sweatshirt
to practice for my first born.

In my fourth half-life
my face was dented
by a doorknob I crashed into.

In my fifth half-life
I flickered in and out of phase so quickly
no one realized I was only half there.

In my sixth half-life
every time I got the kitchen floor spotless
muddy feet ran across it.

In my seventh half-life
I forgot my wisdom teeth were pulled
and asked them for advice.
