barflypoet & author of dark fiction


 

It’s time for the ‘What Pains You Project.’ I listen privately to your pain and write an anonymous poem dedicated to you…

 

‘a matter of perception’

 

master to none

he feels the wind

beneath featherless wings;

rooted to the ground.

 

he regrets nothing

staring into the faces

of his smiling kids—

 

they don’t see

his unrealized aspirations;

only dad.
