Poemetry by T.A. Barnhart


what if we humans
are the most miserable lifeforms
in the universe?
given the size and amount
of everything,
that seems unlikely.
there must be,
out there in all that vastness,
some sentient creature
suffering through an existence
more dreadful than ours.
i just don’t know why
we humans try to damn hard
to make sure that isn’t true.
