one. Sunday Morning
the light filters through
broken a part by the glass
and in its glory the morning rises
but I snuggle deeper into my sheets
two. Monday Traffic
trucks are obnoxious and difficult
they think they own the road, but really
someone should just set them on fire
so that they will go away.
three. men suck
they think its okay to say whatever they want-
to do whatever they want-
and don’t acknowledge the power they have
to end a career or ruin someones life.
You’d think they’d learn by now
how to be a decent human…
but even that’s too much to ask for.
four. test anxiety
my pen just fell of the desk because my hands are shaking so hard
the professor made the exam worth 30% of my grade
i might as well just die now.
five. women’s day
don’t ever let what someone else thinks
stop you from doing what you want
or what someone else wants
stop you from getting what you need
be the sun.
six. periods are the worst
the first time, i thought i was dying
this time, i’m just extremely annoyed
every time i want to cry because i hate it
but at least it doesn’t happen all the time.
can we just talk about how unreasonable you are all the time?
can we just don’t about how you drive me insane every day?
can we just talk about how you don’t listen when I speak?
can we just talk about me and my problems for once?
can we just talk.
eight. sickness is crippling
i’m not weak
let’s just talk about that first.
i’m not weak but my body aches
everything is blurry, sound is fuzzy
trying to get up is actually harder than swallowing a shot
don’t laugh, that’s hard too
first second: leg shakes
second second: eyes roam
third second: pull hair
fourth second: deep breath
fifth second: scream
sixth second: rub eyes
seventh second: scream again
eighth second: jump and run out
sunday roast and veg
gravy wafts through the air
warm, spicy, mouth-watering
cranberries are mashed and cooled
when can it be christmas again?
things only ever taste good then
when the fires burning
and cinnamon is everywhere.
