23.

We may all have our obsessions –
cigarettes and soaps, exes and white teeth
but I am terminally haunted by past transgressions
my skin crawling with what I did or did not say
with things I perhaps shouldn’t want
invasively, constantly – am I dying, am I old?
is my home on fire, do I love enough
could I not be so hateful, take up so much space
move from the city, to California, catch a plane
while you wait for me I will consider murder
a brutal head unfortunately filled
with viscera, blood and guts – let me know more
as I ruminate still, I obsess – if I do not say it
out loud, if I never so much as write it down
did I think it at all? Did it happen?
