Another Man Of The Vast Middle

Another Man Of The Vast Middle short poem

Photo by JD Hancock

Gummy stew of my intellect
Something cooked too long
Failed to set, failed to meet
The approval of the master chef
But even at the brink of the bin
I bounce back brimming with
A poisonous vengeance, say
You’ve been making it so long
The same way, informing
The taste of generations, how
Do you know you haven’t
Always made it wrong, that
My body the consistency of
Currant studded suet isn’t
The toothsome delicacy
Everyone is searching for?
Even so into the bin I go.
