I’m Not a Poet

February 27, 2007

I’m not a poet –

I just don’t like punctuation very much

Still, as long as I have unlimited

Line breaks

I might as well use them.

Whether you think you can

or you think you can’t

they won’t let you, so give it up.


They’ll tell you the world’s getting warmer.

It’s not.

Hell’s just getting closer.

They’ll tell you the God will love you no matter what

He won’t.

Cheer up bro, he was kind of a control freak anyway.

They said that she was just going through a phase.

They lied to you.

Postpartum depression never lasts 17 years.

There’s not really a diplomatic way to put this

so I’ll just say it.

I think calling that a suicide “attempt” is pretty generous.

And I don’t recall you being raised to make one poor effort and slink off miserably

Also, you cry way too much. The sun is out.

So cheer up.
