by Glenn Freeman

Published in Issue No. 267 ~ August, 2019

So Zen I’ve always said 
when I handle some difficulty 
by not handling it 
at all. See how cool 
my temperament?  My need 
to be unique is quite 
original. I would live 
in the subjunctive forever, let 
all the connotations linger 
and clash against each other 
while I walked silently away
from the wreckage of whatever
word I uttered. Some days
I can barely speak at all.
