poor performance

afflicted
to this
addiction
addicted
to this
restriction
in my rasping
blood flecked
airways

my inspiration
tends to be
more from
desperation
than an
inclination
to follow my
dreams

it isn’t that
i don’t
want more
to be well
to move on
to succeed

it is that
past performance
is
indicative
of
future returns

or
in more
colorful
terms

i have been

dry fucked
by hope
enough to know
it is
an idiot’s game.

so fuck me
for
falling behind
again

right?
