Simple Math


In the world

I am one of the many

a distant stranger

wrinkled face

gray goddess.

Just like you.

It is a daily challenge to be noticed.

To be recognized, near impossible.

 

The special moments are few and far.

When they come

I feel gifted, energized

my spirit soars

until my inner editor

a fanatic

delivers

another sucker punch.

And as the blood drains

from my muse

it reminds me of

a spangled, lone star tick

who has cracked my code again

the equation elemental,

silence the fanatic.
