late

partly my fault
partly your fault
I am as
aware as I
have to be
and as excited
as a person can get
the reason is not the important
piece of the puzzle
and a gallon of soap
will be required
after we have seen
this kind of year
there will not be another
way to cross the ocean of
fear
between you and the bottom rung
of the ladder
leading to davey jones locker
across the hall from hades
favorite seafood;
do you recall
the pressing need for
interest in the passions you bore
on your shoulders
when you put effort into making a difference
as if a little old lady
was mentally drooling over a
plate of food that wasn’t hers
but passed real nearby
and was covered with a sauce
made of cheese that stirred memories
or maybe even like a
starving worker who would never
be allowed to eat on the job
but has a whole plate of steak
that is supposed to be thrown away
right in front of
someone so
incredibly desperate…
