for what it’s worth…

i know better

i’m healing slow;
throttling down on the
poison to keep the
process going.
misty rain
keeps up the
appearance of water,
but i know better.

it could be one of so
many, so much,
& i’m raw-bone tired.
shit. ain’t nothing new.
same problem as ever;
expectations. shot my
foot accordingly.

i couldn’t make a list
or anything; a lot,
all-at-once is all i know. how
dispiriting it can be
waitin’ onna phone
to ring. gotta bend
the mind around it, one
way or ‘nother.

misty rain
keeps up the
appearance of water.
i know better.

    How precious you are…let these words surround and comfort you!

    • Thanks dude. Makes me feel better about the whole thing (by which I mean the poem.) I’m used to being caught off-guard by life, but this was just ridiculous. Well, that is what poetry is for, to comfort and strengthen when everything else goes to shite. Hope all is going well,

      crb.
