Pachyderm

 

I used to think I’d like to be thick-skinned

Like a pachyderm

Then it wouldn’t hurt not getting that

For which I yearned

But being thick-skinned essentially means

That you’re numb

And for an artist of any kind that’d be

Recklessly dumb.

  1. I think that would be a great title. Also RECKLESSLY NUMB. Some poets do write under a muse of numbness. Their work is often a bit depressing.
