The Impoverished


(x = space)



The Impoverished


It is another day

To wake up into misery

Sometimes a vivid


Takes me to

A place that is not

So spectacular but

I want to live there

And I wake up

And I’m here

I wake to the gray skies

Of war

Or my child is

Still sick

Or my child is gone

My children


There is my own pathology

It hurts

And there is no promise

Of change for the better


I wake into many

Who have problems

And they seep

Or crash into awareness

I have no money

Or my clothes are poor

My shoes don’t wrap around

My feet

So I have trouble moving

And I’m seen first

For the problems that I have


I’m seen first

For the problems that I have

That’s how my friends know me

Or my family

Or anyone
