there is nothing
i am choked

choking, on words

better polished
better structured
better —

than my own.

self-made defeat,
the product of a tired mind,
a worried mind,

why? —

easier to call out the negatives
than believe too hard, in any one thing.

like talent,
like love,
like purpose,

in all its goodness.

who knows what may produce the fall? and when
grace leaves she leaves indefinitely.

better to stay without, in doubt,
instead of holding fast to notions
dreamed up in fantasy slicked moments.

do you know how foolish i am?
