Erratical, Fanatical

you keep repeating
the same phrase
like I’m not
“getting it”

you keep denying
as I keep providing
a reasonable escape
a kaleidoscopic phase

break that down
beat beat beat

know your place
do not step out of line

follow those unwritten rules
tell him STOP
Oops, too late

rape rape rape
chk chk chk

modern malaise
heartbroken days
every day



“it’s not easy”
“it’s too easy”
