by the skin of my teeth

Posted to Action Poetry




I have just
survived this crisis
of self
serving doubt
in every little thing
just a thing
everything
all I do
in every way
reflects
you and me
myself, I?
am scared shitless, shirtless
man in the street
welcomes me
God I am terrified
awestruck
open
defenseless
is the only way to go.
