are you worse than everyone else?

metropolises are so fucking prepared
for loneliness
every park and every embankment
every wet bench up an empty avenue
these are for your disposal

you are worse than others if
they choose them rather than you but
what about if
they do choose loneliness rather than you?
are you worse than everyone else?

  1. I’m delighted by your prose and style, Tony. There’s a tension in this that I simply adore, and there’s a kind of sarcastic pain that feels like it hits to the heart. While I don’t want to lose myself in your internal links, I find the entire format fresh. Again, it’s a delight.

  2. Mmmmm, a bit of angst showing through in this post? It did move me though.
    Sit down on the wet stone,
    Wet eyes say ‘leave me alone,’
    Not welcome, comforting smiles,
    Leave me be, with my bloody piles.
