A Good Question

“Is he in, out or indifferent?”

She meant her boss, of course, but

it made me wonder

which I was. I mean

I want to be in (who doesn’t?) but

how far in is too far?

Do you notice the growing lack of air

and space and light?

Are you aware of drying up and

slowly suffocating?


Out isn’t just not in, oh no:

I could be out of it (have been),

on my way out,

out of the loop, my

tiny mind or

to lunch, and

I’m often on a limb,

standing or rageous, but fear

being cold and

dread being left.


Pursuing all these ins and outs leaves

little room for indifference: I will give it my

full attention when I’m

    A frowning poem with a twisted smile. Taking the meaning of words to the nth degree, and very elegantly done. So elegantly, so thought-provoking..that if taken too seriously could cause a two aspirin day and a lie-down. Humorous, with a who the hell cares attitude at the end. A ha ha and hmmmmm poesy, both!
