Esau

Two Brothers

I am important. To me
you don’t seem bothered. At all.
You don’t put time in – with me
it’s all work and business like.

I’d love to rescue a piece
of something useful from this –
the history shared by us then
has made us men, and shattered us.

I’m not important. To you
I’m part of brokenness. Trying
to live a better way. But
just tell me how you’re doing.

  1. I have now written several post responses and can’t decide which is the least superficial, so stuff it –

    such a beautiful/mournful/rich piece.

  2. Ah, thanks mate. Glad you like it.
