Everything Is Broken - Poem by Sean Joyce

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.
