Petulance

I’ve been breathing candle smoke
I’ve been caught with my own folk
Lightening the room
Listening to
the drip
the drab
drab
drab
drip

God, save me from the intellectuals
So
Cold of meanings
Cold and slow

Throw in a sentence
-The point! The big fat boring point!
touch together words
make an idea
pause for applause

I’m laughing

Smiling, part of, included…
Jokes, stories,
on a room on my own
feeling
-Ha!
feeling
-Yeah!
wait for it wait for it
Feeling shut out.
