-unaffected-                                                                                                August 14, 2007

enraged at the

hunger dwelling inside-

gnawing at my hapless defenses-

feeding on the impairments

of a pathological existence-

staring astride myself

into a mirror of shame,

the imperfections all

too obvious-

unaffected by the world at large-

so much so,

that wars fought by men

are but squabbles

compared to my pretentious

suburban homemaker


each human tragedy suffered

less sinister than

my own-

the failure of my anguished

reality haunting

my fractured dreams…
