XII. reading (people) comprehension skills

blue grass, cold, blades snapping under toes.
this is the closest you'll get to self harm!! this
is the farthest you'll come to getting a whiff
of five days unable to shower, or maybe get an impulse to shave
every hair from your body!!

what a great world!!

you always promised to understand, and i
really get it, i do--but with each debate over
what is in my head, what is alive, what is dead, who
is dying in the physical or metaphorical, who has
a thousand-thousand pounds of unspotted weight on their chest--

for fuck's sake, you just don't get it, and this
is a day's poem wasted on you.
I am a forest fire and an ocean, and I will burn you just as much
as I will drown everything you have inside.

XIII. a fictitious poem of a black dog that represents depression

say he bit me, really dug his fangs in--that dog--and the pain
was on level with a hornet swarm, poison released over time
(i say poison because you're never sure if it's venom, though i've heard
if it bites you and you die, it's venom; but if you bite it and die, it's poison)
but why don't i assume it was both?

i do not remember biting the dog back, but say he's on a chain.
he is on a chain in the front lot and he is my guard dog.
he will keep people like you away with your thought integrity,
your beliefs and morals.

(i once cried at church as my friend was nailed to a cross;
the dog told me he had to piss, and now all i remember
is wanting to kiss my friend in his pain.)
I am a forest fire and an ocean, and I will burn you just as much
as I will drown everything you have inside.
