nothing nice

if you don’t have
anything nice to say
bury it in metaphor
then your petulant rage
looks pretty as it drips
down the page
the wrong people
will think it’s about them
and the ones it is about
likely don’t read you anyway
or their egos
can’t let them accept
they are the subject
the only one it hurts
is you
and everyone has made it
abundantly clear
you don’t matter at all
