Poem: Starvation and Sorrow by Mark Tulin

She’s disjointed


Gaunt and sunken

A cubist

A Picasso

Unable to eat

Fearing life

Broken and abused


But not finding

A crow’s broken wing

A bleeding arrowhead

Sickly and staunch

She buries herself

In the past

Her gravestone

Prematurely inscribed:

Lost in the web

Of starvation

And sorrow.

I am an author, poet, humorist, and short story writer from Palm Springs, California. I write about various topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia to my years as a family therapist and finally to my soul-searching in California. These are poetic narratives that may have humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry and stories resonate with you.
