the human suit

lay down  
become one of them  
wear the suit  
accompanied by a tie
listen to them claim  
you're one of us  
while receiving a slap  
on the shoulder,  
lay down  
become less eye  
whittle your bones down  
until there's nothing  
holding you up
live in a big house  
pay your bills  
escape from life  
twice a year,  
lay down  
become one of them  
listen to praise  
that means nothing
dream about everything  
you wanted to be  
before they told  
you exactly  
what you  
should be,  
then laugh  
because you  
found every part  
you believed to  
be forgotten.
