I asked for your pain. You gave it to me. It’s time for my ‘what pains you project.’

‘he knows she’s not the one’

lunchbox in hand
he gets to work
toiling at a job
he’s loved to hate
while all the freeways
to greater opportunity
have closed around him.

undeterred he eats
his ham and cheese
patiently dreaming on
the day he changes
white bread for


#whatpainsyouproject –
a poem for an anonymous reader and their pain…
