Little Poems

this is almost it
inexplicable final outburst
calloused fragile aftermath
why is the strength so strong
the felt so deep
the dreamt so wild
the love so . . . human
in this
this is
in this
so easily extinguishable

* * *
how little are the unlittle thoughts
unlittle words
unlittle dreams
maybe just maybe the unlittle deeds are a little bit unlittle
but what do I know
I entered the room
where books have been written
dreams have been dreamt
life has been going
how little is a vacant room
how little is emptiness
