This made me think of how us writers can be so consumed by our craft that we forget to “live” life. To actually go out and live life beyond the words on paper. But deep inside we may convince ourselves that it will always be a balance between wanting to experience life and wanting to translate it onto page.
But I loved reading this free-verse poem in general. So many good depictions and metaphors of human greed, and the condition of people “thinking” for others. The irony of life. I really enjoyed reading this, Sean. You should definitely continue it sometime.
