Disconnect as a possible solution to problems of my own making (a poem)

Back to not repeating words (at least, within the poem)… 

This suggestion of a disconnect
doesn’t connect—or it does
but not how you’d expect

All things being equal
I’d rather be anyone else
with no stake in the outcome

My natural inclination to hang back
would then step aside
and let me do what’s needed

Would you like some help?
Right this way…
