“Balance” New Poem of the Day (2023)


By Ashley O’Hare

You pick up a pen,

but that’s too permanent,

so you swap it out for a pencil,

but that’s too fragile.

Two polar opposites.

How do you decide?

Do you commit,

even when your heart

is uneasy?


Do you balance

on the fence

relying on the presence

of both

creating and undoing?
