Ambivalent Loneliness

Updated: Jan 9




A mindfield of school

teacher bullets

1969,

swallowing used chewing gum grit,

1966,

buried pets,

1976,

long long ago,

before the rot in this trench

I call home.


The world laughs,

drinks wine,

posing dinners.

Going outdoors

feels criminal.


If I go down the path

I'll look back at a

a confused

dark person

who lives as

a perishing tyre


OK. I'll do it next week

if this gets too much again,

or maybe it won't

next week.






Moral

When the pain of staying the same becomes more painful than

the pain o f changing, that is when long-term change can be made.
