“Shopworn, Tattered, & Torn” on ink & paper

August 11, 2011

Sure,  I’m  shopworn,

Tattered (as if it mattered)

And torn.

Surely, torn;

I don’t decide if I’m just too tired  or

I won’t give any/ to the torture

I won’t give up/

On/To  torture.

It’s nearly the nerve pills,

The stolen coffee sleeplessness,

Or I’ve faced my fill.
