This anger
is almost
as red hot
as the desire
is not.

Poetry that impresses me the most is that which is profound with the least amount of words. You convey a strong message with frugal verbiage.

I have always enjoyed your poetry, Athena. I am glad to have found you here. Thank you for this and all the others you have posted here.

I keep coming back to this poem, reading it again and again without ability to pinpoint just why it thrills and never disappoints. I think its the twist at the end, the contrast unexpected, the plopping of "is not." I just love that plop, articulated with dry unblinking attitude.
