Playing catch up with the poems–play along, I bleed in this one.

bleeding pen

-ity is not so much
a being or doing,
but bleeding words
reaming emotion
from the soft gentler parts
of ones deepest deficiency.

-ity, a burden
lightly hefted at first,
the burden builds until
the true meaning of Atlas
is clear, we gladly grab
the entire world, more words
in our fingers, and find it too large
to swallow and falter and sway,
still striving, stringing our songs
along, gasping, endless effort enervating
our entire flawed, vulnerable author
