A man said to the universe:
“Sir, I exist!”
“However,” replied the universe,
“The fact has not created in me
A sense of obligation.”
“A Man Said to the Universe”
-Stephen Crane

Hear my problem,
Old Man:
I wear the world,
anguished by its lacking.
I write.
I write so others
might wail as well.
They don’t.
I do.
That’s the problem.
