You Got the Poison... I Got the Remedy

I wrote this
because I needed to write
something,

because I don’t want to spite anything
because I needed to stop the sting
and nothing else was working.

I saw your latest
creation,

your attempt
at renovation

your obscure and stunted explanation
of the inner-workings of yourself

and I was reminded of something—
of someone
I let go long ago
a young girl I placed on the shelf
so she’d find time to grow

I say this because I know you,
and I know impatience
how it feels like a sixth sense
how it holds on at everyone’s expense

you should know common sense is free,
and you can be too,

but you don’t have to listen to me.

and I don’t have to listen—
to your childlike narration
your puerile condemnation
and one-sided conversations…

your art of exploitation
will feed your intoxication
like the pacification of a junkie.

You Got the Poison... I Got the Remedy
