A Kermit Complex

I’m tired of being the straight man
masquerading as
a character in a group of Muppets
I don’t even like really.
Tired of being nice
when I’m not even nice really.
I just want to stop peacemaking
and explode a little.
I just want to break shit
and be an animal for a little:
fight, bite, and fuck
self actualized to self destruct
and destroy.
Because I’m pissed.
-I’m only human.
Living my script
was fluid when
reading it on paper.
But the theatre of real life
is open,
is far more potent,
and so explosion
is my only option.
The idea of inner peace
gets lost in my only option.
I’m ticking,
time clock cocked for zero
so I can snap.
my dams burst and crack
if I listen.
Intentions get shape shifted
because the only fists I’ve lifted
were pacifistic.
See before,
being Zen was cool
because calm collection
creates control within the crazed
craving chaos in it’s most compound and compacted state:
Water signs thrown out from their usual place,
just Pisces swimming in magma,
Leo burned and smoked, stars riddled with asthma
my rare anger is terrifying.
My madness is meteoric
when zen was formulaic,
my hands are natural weapons
when animal instinct is archaic
and I will obey it
because there is no release like the release of
craving the violence
in the silence that I’ve created.
My everyday passes by in pacifism,
simple wisdom
whispering for me to calmly collect,
dissuading me from a fire
that I can’t willingly reject
because I’m only human.
-I’m pissed because reading the script was fluid
when I thought I knew what I was doing…
