How you doing?

A friend of mine messaged me on MySpace and asked me how I was.

I wrote this poem back...

Hey

I am doing OK
if by OK
you mean
the same as always

which we might
want to wonder
and worry
about

as
I am not OK
usually.

so
why
would I write that I am OK
now?

maybe it is just easier
to write
"i am ok"
as
it can be difficult
to discuss
the hopelessness
that lies coiled at the
heart of existence.

via e-mail.

p.s.
Congrats on the new baby!

That pretty much says it all.
