Poem : Halfway

Halfway

Is it alright to be a halfway geek?
I mean, I love Batman and Spiderman and…
well. I also listen to really old music and…
dream of owning pencils with leads of all hardnesses
and softnesses.
Perhaps we should all stop being so
Halfway hard on ourselves,
halfway empty, halfway full.
Perhaps we should ask
The sky?
– Ashvina Naidu
These poems are part of Tuesday Typists : Maya Stein does 10-line poems every Tuesday. Tuesday Typists is a wonderful secret writing group which Maya prompts with interesting words. This was my response to “halfway”. I met Maya and was introduced to her work at Squam Art Workshops, New Hampshire, USA – Fall 2012.
