Poetry Grrrl

'Listen' has the exact same letters as 'Silent'. Coincidence?

untitled poem

on April 1, 1994

just look at what
I have become
a shadow of a shadow of
my former self
in the crowd
someone else will
have to take over where I left off
just as I am taking over
where someone else left off.
I wonder,
was it an even trade?
