woodn’t

new job neurosis
anxiety kicking in
full effect
forced sleep deprivation
to fall into a coma last night
woke up
tired and afraid
pacing
retracing
every mistake
that led to this place
failure failure
just a bucket of guts
picking up the pieces
of the mirror
so willfully shattered
been trapped so long
in shards
it is obvious
the duct tape won’t hold
any longer
ignore the light
filtered through blackened skin
the stapled on smile
ignore the fool
the marionette
that clipped his own strings
and flopped in a heap
as the vacant crowd
clapped
the wooden heart
full of sawdust and dream
letting lies
fill his empty head
a month behind rent
four on his phone
the idiot thinks
it’ll get better
