Ex-directory

I wasn’t listed because I never existed,
I was all in the mind.

Not really Godlike
more of a sod,
(like that if you will)

Nothing is hard to swallow when
your stomach is hollow and you
haven’t eaten for days.

You are the Euphrates
longing
to be a Tigris
only Mesopotamia
could put the blame on ya
for wanting more.
