Backfire - Poem by s./j. goldner

She could have been our worst enemy;
you're lucky she destroyed herself
instead of us.

    A poem of self-directed observation, but observation nonetheless...reminds me a bit of E. Pound...

    Most people are their own worst enemy...and t should be this way, that's where poetry comes from. One shold never be anyone else's enemy...leave them to their own poetry and inner turmoil.
