March 1, 2013 Comments Off on tanka by nelima


when I think of ridding myself
of the objectionable
I lose momentum
the need to rid myself – weighty evidence
of the very problem I want to erase


physically bigger
yet I feel psychically smaller
having slipped from the lead role
to supporting actor
in my own play


my ambivalence
made the perfect blind spot
unable to name what was in plain sight
I kept blowing air
into a leaky balloon
