A Question of Significance

To think that your words
all twisted
and tortured

dripping raw emotion
on a blank page
make any difference.

Must be an egomaniac

or a poet.
Vincent O'Connor

In the quiet eventide
I spend my last moments awake
encircled in your arms
listening to my blood’s applause.
Vincent O'Connor's
