>imagine this big tent poetry #7 wordle


Don’t resent me I praise you

left hungry in a dangerous

dark part of the city

diseased chest cavities

cough releasing filth

Don’t resent me I praise you

pieces of falling stars

from a milky sky

comfort is an alley

memory is dull

you keep saying

Don’t resent me because I praise you

  5. >Agreed with Julie…painful and beautiful at the same time. This, oddly enough, conjured up 19th century London for me…homeless women and children…TB-infected all around…dark alleys where the forgotten can be found Very heartbreaking. Or then again, this could be 21st century America.-Nicole
