Daily missive for Friday the 24th of January.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Friday the 24th of January.

I know nothing
Of poetry
Of life
The definition of love
The intention of being
The measure of another
The passion of cause
Sleight of indifference
The pain of suffering
Is always relative,
In largesse
It is widely spread
Knowing few boundaries
Charitably seductive
Its impact ideographic
No words will tell
Its true nature
A symbol
Of malicious intent
To be endured
Does that make us equal
In spite of difference
Pain is pain
Is what I know enough
To see me through
The trammels
Of restriction
Limiting my freedom
To regulate
When one’s own
Limited capacity
For tolerance
Is overwhelmed
By a catharsis
Of self-flagellation
Which comes with recognition
Of one’s own insignificance
Will that be enough
To satisfy
The indulgence
Of self-absorption
Reassigned
As ennui
