Margaret Alice Second

Dire Lack Of Interaction [REVISED]


Failed to find embracing peace this weekend - oh yes,
moments of external joy flooded my mind temporarily,
waves broke on my brain’s sandy shores but the mist
rolled in again, clouds covered a sun briefly lighting
darkness behind my eyes, never really allowed light
to filter through to the little alien in my head

Wished to visit mother Saturday, depressed because
I wouldn’t see her at all this weekend, my beloved lost
in his own cave contemplating challenges at work and
deaf to common altercations; kids studying, Nat Geo
Wild focused exclusively on crocodiles, bracing swim
failed to cheer up my inner brain stem reptile who, in

Dire collusion with the little alien never ceased endless
complaints about boredom due to lack of an intellectual
interaction with kindred-souls, overpowering emotional
void enacting delusory distractions, a growing feeling of
emptiness while trying to translate a bone-dry document…

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
