Problems with Value

June 29, 2009


I am not worthy

I breathe in
Approximately one eighth
Of the required amount
Of air to fill my lungs
I tell myself
Make do with that
You greedy
Useless
Stupid
Wasteful
Creature
Spread it thinly
It’ll last

I breathe out
Tense
Scared
And hurt

I am
Perhaps
A little hard on myself

    Nice to see this one getting a bit of exposure, Rachel.

    I think of you every time I see it now, Jim. You were the first one to ever say you liked it!

    This is really lovely, sad but kind of hopeful too at the end. Enjoyed that. Thanks

    Hey – that’s me…sad but kind of hopeful!
    Glad you like. Maybe I should postcard this one. It would fit.

    This poem is lovely and elegant, simple and deep.

    Elegant? I don’t get that one much…like it though. Thanks. Much appreciated.

    Powerful little poem and very well read, gives me the shivers!

    Yes, it’s not one I’ve read out much…in fact ever now I think about it…but I was surprised when I listened to it back. It does seem to work.
    Thanks, Sorlil.

    Excellent. Good to see and hear this in the most innovative poetry mag online.

    Now it’s starting to feel like a party! Anyone need another drink? Who’s got the corkscrew?
