The Line of Being

Something Like Guilt
by Jared Carnie

I had to break
a couple of hearts
to learn
there’s a fine line
between being
and being
a cunt.

When you see it
in the eyes
of others
you realise
is a little like
and a lot like

is apathy
with a more convincing


– often a cause
but never
an alibi.


Jared A. Carnie recently returned from the Outer Hebrides. In August he featured at the Inverness Book Festival. He can be found at

I am a dreamer, as well as a doer, who lives in the North Georgia mountains. I started my publishing journey August of 2013, have had moderate success, but my utmost passion is my "daytime" job, which is working with adults who are constantly striving to better their lives as they obtain the GED credential.
