It will be several days of confession.
I have starved myself.
I have been hard and violent.
Each doctor takes note, takes opinion,
takes my blood and stirs
it in his coffee.
It’s Monday. 9:30 A.M.
The sterile tile has been examined,
the hard carpet, despised!
I twist dismay into the carpet fiber
with one foot,
the other taps out
Sunday was a long day of struggle.
I ate out of the palm of a man,
tugged at his whiskers and
He had a candlestick, long like a lady,
using its light to sort me out.
I had only borrowed trust,
I had to protect myself.
He became a smoky tantrum,
a raging death match forcing truth
out of my swollen mouth.
It was a Sunday of ruin.
Confession came, thick bees swarming
a blur of black and yellow before
I fell hard out of life.
I woke up to this Monday, a dream,
a foggy span of blasting conscience .
And this is just the start.
