Do I Suffer?

Do I suffer?

*

Not pain or fools or the slow passing of time

Not the hollow knock on the bottom of promises

or the shrinking dryness of a joy expired

*

Nor for the future of children

or the disappointment of mice

or the shrill cheerfulness of martyrs

*

But in reality perceived

The happiness hanging on the tree

The grey of a Monday you can touch

*

For the present absent and the absent present

Attaching to forms so well

the joins don’t show

*

In delusion so strong it can brick me out of bliss

out of loving as a verb and into a private prison

where I bump into self-made walls

*

For whom do I suffer?

For me or for you?

Do I have a choice?

*

The answer is in life

and the choosing of it
