to Whom it may Concern

A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto

to Whom it may Concern

 

 

i am compromised

desensitized,

a glorified poet

sagging themes wrinkled with age

now unread

nearly dead

 

creative consequence

they all went out the fire door

exited like my inspiration

 

one last spark

allowed me this write

but i am writing it with no feeling

nothing

nothing

 

just nothing

 

grave stone will read, 

an "anonymous poet lies here"

just like he did in most of his poems.

 

believe nothing

nothing

 

just nothing.

This sounds like me J. lol But you, no! Yes we all have our lulls but as a English teacher as yourself you command and have so much at your disposal. Its all about reading I think, the more you read the more ideas!

I have always enjoyed your writing my friend. Your writing peels back like an onion with layer after layer. Something beautiful consistently shows itself in your work. Thank you for sharing.
