“I’m Winning” by John Tzikas


I imagine illnesses
Apostrophes are apocalyptic
Marking my magistrates

Wild willows wallow
Insensitive idiots infiltrate

I'm winning
It's not what I planned
I'm winning
Not when it comes to fans

Nastiness negates neighbors
Nobody needs negativity

I'm winning
Inches at a time
I'm winning
But not hearts and minds

Imitators incriminate idealists
Naughtiness nullifies normality
Growing grievance groups

I'm winning
Pound by pound
I'm always winning
When no one is around
