I Feel Guilty When…

Published December 4, 2018 by Nan Mykel

I feel guilty when I write about Trump, because I’m contributing nothing but despair.  And I feel guilty when I don’t write about him, because how life-threatening he is to America. So today I’ll just submit a little poemette, entitled

WILL I STILL BE ME?

I want to know

most terribly so.

While rooming in the womb,

on the stage behind the curtains,

overhearing intimations

of change. Whose screams?

I arrive, a piece of ignited clay

presenting with my backside,

bringing pain on opening day.

  • Presidents come and go in our democracy…what citizens do is important too. Perhaps we expect too much of our leaders and hang too much of our hope (or despair) on them.

    Anyway, I like your poem-ette and the potential each human life possesses!
