  • Tainted Well Water

    When you write a poem
    That leaves a strange feeling
    In the taste of others
    Who do not know what to say
    Except the pleasantry
    Of Silence

    You know you
    Have drank from an ancient well
    Perhaps long abandoned
    Whose water table
    Has been contaminated

    By a salt aquifer
    Or methane or the dark Goddess Hecate

    Who is now inside
    Your thoughts

    So THAT's what the heck I've been doing half of the time. It's a wonderful poem, and I don't mean to make light Tanner, but I've felt this too - in much less poetic terms. You do the confusion of waiting for a response justice in a very nicely worded way.
