“TEMP?” a poem, a.k.a.: “The Usual, Terrible State!” May 17, 2019 [Friday]
Temporary – moments! States-of-lucidity, holding-IT-together-but-few-&-far-between!
We ARE – the weakest and most miserable creatures that ANYONE has [I’ve] ever seen!
Around HERE! We’re just A MESS, most of the while!
When you see “her,” out-in-public, with her real cool smile,
DRESSED UP AND OH! SO-FRAGRANT!
It’s-“short-lived, Baby!” “The Deception’s” -ridiculously-FLAGRANT!
For, often, in about an hour or so,
She’ll COMPLETELY FALL APART, y’-know?!
She’ll-then SCREAM AND YELL AND JUMP ABOUT,
For-she’s-been-HOLDING-IN – her USUAL POUT!
WE ARE PRETTY MUCH – USUALLY – JUST CRAZY AND WILD,
Unless-we-have-a-nice-house-food-and-lots-of-meds, to make us mild!!
We have to sleep, and get over everything, especially The Flu,
We’re USUALLY – stinky and rotten, through and through!
And – YOU TELL ME [that] YOU WANNA LIVE WITH SOMEONE FOR 24/7?
Yeah! and you’re ALSO – the one who thinks there-is A Heaven!!
Well, that’s certainly something TO TALK ABOUT ,
When you are full! AND, especially, AFTER YOUR POUT!
AND – after you have put on deodorant-stick, after your shower!
HELL is the usual state ’round here, almost every hour!
So, is there any good reason to hang out with anyone – for any length of time?
Well, WE ARE FORCED TO DO IT WITH OURSELVES! Is it a crime,
To HOPE – that someone will accept us – THE MISERABLE WAY WE ARE?
I dunno! It’s DOES seem to be the case, but – I haven’t got very far!
We’re just a bunch of humans, squirming, mostly around!
It surely is nice, though, if anyone will-make-a-pleasant sound,
In [YOUR] [my] direction! even if [YOU] [I] don’t deserve-it!
Could YOU? perhaps? Love-me!? BUT – wait-’til-I-get-over-my-“snit!”
