Brian Rihlmann writes


what drives you mad
isn’t the people
or the world as it is
it’s the you in your head
the one you’ll never be

it’s like attempting a facsimile 
of a portrait 
painted by a great master
you stare at it
as your brush follows the lines
the curves...

but when you’re finished
and lay your canvas
side by side
with the original 

all you can do is scream
tear it to pieces
and start over
and again
