Poetry Submission by joseph james cawein

We are honoured to have received another submission from joseph james cawein. Joseph has a talent for instantly painting an image in a reader’s mind within the first words of his poems, and this is no exception. Delving into the topic of anxiety, Joseph presents a perspective of the mental illness that is beautifully articulated in just a few short lines. Please enjoy the wonderful simplicity of Joseph’s work and we hope to see more from him in the future.

untitled VI

i am suckling my precious anxieties.

i know that i am animal
but fear that i am man.

i cower
when i glimpse perfection.

Delay
delay
delay,

Decay.
