Hunger

I could have done better
that is certainly clear
so many mistakes born out of fears
unnecessary evasions
spoilers and pollutants
throwing it all in
instead of screaming my truth

but I’m not rueful
or sorry at all
to be so would simply be mad!
I answered my call the best I could
harnessed to a plough like everyone has

I only wish my overlords
could have spotted the trait
and helped a young boy with
his hand in the sink
writing with his left
so neat and focused
then ruining it all
by smudging the ink
