Subtract. A poem.

This room is overcrowded,
ingurgitated hell.
But just you and me,
if you subtract everyone else.

This room is clamorous,
cacophonous hell.
But you could hear me (so very clearly),
if you subtract everyone else.

This room is overheated,
agitated as hell.
But algid enough for you and me,
if you subtract everyone else.

But if you subtract everyone else,
would you want to be
right here with me?
Perhaps, we’ll never know or see.

My first book of poetry, The All or the Nothing, is available now as an e-book from most online distributors. To find out more, click here.
