Everything Is Broken


My i-Pod is broken
nobody knows
well it works socially
but I miss the music

My mobile is broken
nobody knows
it works socially
I can hold it to my
ear and nod but
I miss things

My heart is broken
nobody knows
it works socially and
well, I get about
to places we went to together
to people we went to when
we were, but
I miss you

    Sean, this is excellent. It reminds me of Simon Armetige. There is a pathos, but delivered so dead-pan. Each stanza is beatifully constructed: 4; 6; 8 lines. That is so brilliantlly thought out but also the measurement is excellently constructed. This is one of the best of these forms of poetry that I have read and shows a craftman's hand at work.

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
