Things Could Be Worse | A Poem by Wanda Morrow Clevenger

more and more
I think on how
far is too far
how much
too much
at what point
is pinpointed
where the hogs
eat the cabbage
and
how satisfying
it would feel
to scoop up
all the things
could be worse

happy half-fulls
and hurl that
unfailing
optimism
at the closest
brick wall
to see it
flail the air
then splatter
drip and drain
to the ground
left empty
to evaporate
completely
between glass shards
to show
unequivocally
what worse
looks like
