IMPERCEPTIBLE SUFFERINGS
(4/6/14)


they worry

they fret

they anger

they stress

over
a multitude
of self created
concerns
not readily
apparent
to anyone
else

observing
their apoplectic
rants
one
would assume
that scorpions
were crawling
in their
underwear

but no

no such
tangible
threats
exists

nonetheless
we have
distraught humans
with whom
to deal

very real
problems
indeed

so even
though
their effects
far outweigh
the causes

we must
comply
in order
to coexist

picking up
the toothpicks
that have generated
such forests
of anguished
fantasy

keeping
an eye out
for any lint
casting
thunderstorm
shadows
