A Poem by Hailey Juliet

you figure

well i can't figure
out the difference be-
tween twelve and one,
why not thirteen?
at least buy me a drink first,
i'm done.
fun . . .

you reckon

well i can't reckon
what i can't think
and if i'm being honest
i think it's oversimplifying it
to call ontology
a reckoning,
just saying . . .

you suppose

well i suppose we could have been 
if you + i 
had about five days
and the motivation
to haul myself and
those boxes labeled,
'still alive'
down from my mother's place
up to that new apartment 
on fifth and king street,
or was it queen . . .

you know what i mean

You're kinda clever.

None the less, I'm not sure I know what you mean about being.

I have no voice is in my awe!! I quite enjoyed the progression, and how you constructed the piece. I personally don't condone word breaks like what you did with "between", but that's on a personal level, and you don't need to accept that, if you don't want to (but I just feel that it takes away from the poem's flow and integrity unless it's done for a clear reason). But the philosophy of this! Holy kwap! And the flow! This is the definition of WOW! Well freaking done!

Between twelve and one is 'Happy Hour' and the drinks cheap and brain death neat! After that … the philosophical study of the nature of being, becoming, existence, or reality, as well as the basic categories of being and their relations doesn't matter anymore! And as for sharing in a new apartment - hope it's ground floor - shorter distance to throw out the trash - Ahhh what an inspiring write you have here - :-)

It's like clear where she's supposed to be but unclear how she got there, the maze that is her life is truly reflected in these words. It's supposed to be simple but is it really? I liked the write, this is how I viewed it.
