Tonight, I’m analyzing the oscillation of judgement during an interaction. Am I doing enough for them to approve? Am I being too much for them to handle? Rarely do I find a happy medium between these two rhetorical questions.
reach in my pocket and pull out my phone , . i got a watch but i want you to know that i’m
bored of the topic we chose , . i’m being totally honest and truth is a burn from a
rope that i tied from my arms to my toes , . working in all our encounters to show i’m re-
-spectably worthy of votes , . well am i wrong or do i have to hit the right notes to be
happy enough to emote , . anything other than lyrics that colleagues would grow in sus-
-picion cause they don’t decipher their troubles for others to contemplate burdens and tolls , .
reaper when grim interlopes , . with a disturbing obsession on how to console the im-
-pending truckloads of self-shaming that come from those meaningless glances that calcify bones , .
