it’s been said
I’m an emotional writer & if my
core is laying there flat lined
you’ll see no poetry from me

if, on the other hand,
nerve endings respond,
regardless, be it pleasure or pain
I can always be counted on;
I’ll sure as hell never let you down & certainly
detail the hand(s) stimulating them

I can write in short bursts,
be venomous
if I need to strike
with words which rightly burn, yet,
ironically offend the offender
then enter an altered state
unlike the normal me; never to be confused
with a known style or agenda
purging such grief as “unknown”
rather than weak
while cleansing my soul
when there is a desperate need

I’ve used this ability
to mingle amongst you
as if a completely different person
while finding it hysterical
I can be both praised, then ignored —
all within a span of 10 minutes

bottom line is this:

I can soothe like a lullaby & be
passionate & vulgar
at the very same time & not
give one
but rather, zero fucks

whether or not you like it
when “I” share my mind
