THEM

POEM

I hate you.

How could evolved choose ugly, with no return?
Why have I come to hate you so casually?
Fanged snakes don't hide their rattle, but they try.

How many times can one be bitten running a shuffled
map of drying landmarks backwards with not but more
than zipped seconds of glance ahead, thirsty for a five,
but the vipers shift poised with fat bellies and lean
eyes darting, though I've given lives of blood, before I
trip, teapot head imploded? Selfish moral obesity.
Can't save mother, barely my birthright.

Idiots. Me and she and they and him and you, all will
equal zero in a whispered hush you bloated moron, read.
Be kind.

You are infecting light in purest form.

I’m become venom at the party like you.
Vividly bitter colored. I hate you.
