Confined

confined in mindConfined within my mind

I grapple for a time

When difference is a given

Fact

Fact:

To be not them

Is a sin without

Forgiveness

Forgiveness

Is given by them

To those who become,

Them

Them who are everything

Them who are law

Them who are

Love

Love which is for

Them

Thus, I am

Confined, within my mind

Grappling with them

To let, simply,

Me

Be

Me

  4. On par with Mike Steeden’s work. And he’s the best contemporary poet I know. Okay, so he’s the only contemporary poet I know of besides you. Actually, you two are the only poets I know of. The point is, it’s poems like these that make me appreciate poetry.

    Loved this, Jeff. The timing is interesting as I just finished a guest post — deadline was today (not being published until next week) and touched on this.
