Poemetry by T.A. Barnhart


my tea
is about
three degrees
too cool
and that
kind of
sums up
my life:
not bad
but just
not quite
good enough.
now those
three degrees
may seem
to you
to be
not a
big deal,
and given
how awful
this world
can be,
you might
be right.
for me,
the one
living this
actual life,
a life
not quite
hot enough
is not
worth drinking.
