online poetry workshop


at a 40th party in london for a german
i ask are you married
he turns the question back toward me
i say no, i've too many shortcomings
he says what?
somebody short is coming to my party?
what short people are coming here!?!#%%$

this poem is in no way meant to be derogatory.
the main character of the poem was an absolutely lovely individual, although he'd a limited grasp of english.
but his english was better than my german.
and to my mind that elevated him above me.
