Bekah Steimel

II.

Itโ€™s only one more
itโ€™s always one more
Iโ€™ve never found satisfaction
in the safety of moderation
itโ€™s the reckless excess
that curves my mouth
Iโ€™m always dialing the close calls
and hanging up
right before they are answered.

 

Sparing with language, this poem cuts to the point and wraps itself up nicely.
