A Shorting
Micah James Bauman

I have a shorting
in my heart
not a longing as some say

I have been living
a tiny thin truth
and by no shrink
of the imagination
can I explain it

I have been shorting
for something less

I once knew
exactly what I wanted
but maybe I was wrong
all ashort


Winding Roads
