Poem - Without

The poem “Without” was inspired by Tumblr meme based on another Tumbler posting by aseriesofnouns.


Sentences without verbs
life spent without actions
suspended between events.
Phrases without adjectives
accents not needed for
an existence already dead.

Life without the within
of those things in between
glue meant to bring relief.
Players come and go
ephemeral after contact
upon the stage of here and now.

Grayness upon the gray,
would it matter if I traded
one for a permanent shade?
Smiling through the tears,
reading without the verbs,
speaking without adjectives.
