Regular Poem: Full Disclosure

28 Apr

Full disclosure:
I did not like you
when we first met.

And here I was thinking
you were getting kind of fat.

Oh hey,
I know we barely know each other, but
I’ve been having dreams about you.

To be honest,
I’d rather you not ask personal questions
if you’re going to be a dweeb about it.

sass me one more time
and we’ll see who cries first.

Yes well,
I’m actually more impressed
that you even know what cut time is.

Full disclosure:
I did not
say any of those terrible things
this week,
but I thought
every single one.

Full disclosure:
I thought
many more
terrible things
than that,
and many of them
were blue as the June sky,
angry and mean
contemptible wicked
hurtful spiraling persistent.

But I knew then and there
they were terrible
and tried
to shut them down,
sometimes succeeded,

and tomorrow’s Friday,
and I can be
the sunshine I ought to be
and maybe even fool myself
for another day.

    This piece reminds me of a horrible story about myself. I used to work i close proximity with a woman with whom I had a strained relationship. One day she expressed frustration with something she did frequently.
    She said to me, “You probably think that’s my worst fault.”
    Without thinking, I said, “Oh no, that’s not your worst fault at all.” Then, realizing how that sounded, I tried to backtrack, but it was hype lame.
    I bought her a brownie as a peace offering.
