Gotta be yourself
Be more like I tell you
– Joan Armatrading

These eyes
have seen too
much again
today, they
plain hurt.
These fingers
have hit too
many keys today,
that is another fact.

I talked to you
tonight, and we
did not connect,
and it wasn’t
because of the bad
connection. I’m
sorry that you
got fired, and by
your ex-boyfriend
no less, by letter.
We talked and did
not connect, but
I don’t believe
you should go
on that raw food
diet, and the doctor
who’s sicking
that onto you
does not see you
but only dollars.

A telling you like it is poem if I’ve ever seen (or written) one. Precisely that was the intention for Poetic Asides.

    Wonderful piece!! I love the way it flows and it reads like Frank O’Hara’s ‘Having a Coke with You’. Visiting from the Pantry btw.
