boys and girls

you know how it is

when you don’t care

about all the shit

you’re supposed to care about,

all that crap you’re expected to do

by all those folks who respect

and love you—the family,

the team, those members of the machine

that usher your ass along,

buying and selling, singing that song

about working or doing or accomplishing

something worth something

to someone who’s somebody,

someone who wants you,

who needs you, or would like you

to do what you were put hear to do

by god or who knows who—

to perform your duty, your job, your destiny—

but the problem is you

know it’s all smoke and mirrors.

you wonder why everyone tries or

seems to give a fuck—not you,

you can see through the shit,

and you’ve decided, now,

at least for today,

nobody can tell you what to do.

you have given up

on their bullshit golden rule—

do what you think everyone else thinks

you should do. fuck that.

you don’t want to play that game

today. you just try to be yourself,

the one nobody sees

sitting in the darkened room,

the drunken fool talking to himself,

keeping track of his breaths,

yearning to be loved—and left

alone—even after his death.

funny, boys and girls, man

is the strangest goddamn animal.

do you know an asshole like this?
