here not, 27/April/17

Imagine not being here
Imagine not being
Imagine not
I’m here
I’m here not
I’m here not being
I’m here not being…. imagine

  1. This excellent – and depressing – poem deserves a comment. It carried me along a familiar route, beginning in a low place, then sinking to the bottom, beginning to rise, only to lose the little hope that was found.
    Immaculate rendering of exquisite anguish. I was going to say emptiness, but I’m pretty sure an empty vessel feels no pain.
