did you see it?
you were so busy watching yourself that I think you missed it
could you feel it?
you were so busy feeling her, I don’t think you felt it
did you hear it?
you were so busy talking, you forgot to listen for anything
So do you know? What happened?
I stopped listening to
I just, stopped
I stopped caring about
I finally stopped
all of you
it felt like the warm morning sun burning off last night’s frost
it sounded like the aboriginal drums of war, steady and strong
it was a bright flash in the frying pan, big and then a light and dangerous sizzle
As for you,
You should watch out for yourself now, because no one else is going to do it for you anymore
You should listen, because one day everyone is going to stop listening to you
You should try to feel something besides her, because she is dirty and temporary
But as for me
I am done.
I am good.
And I am gone.
