Suicide / Leaping
The difference between mean and nice:
You had promise—look at your life.
You have promise—look at your life.
You can’t cloak it: The nature geysers through the nanosecond’s nervous choice; the lower lip not caught but frozen
topples limply toward a jagged sneer
As if I were someone I don’t see on a regular or consistent basis
as if opportunities were few and far between for me to get my licks in
as if I must seize this blessed moment to instruct myself in brimstone
with a twist: the else is silence)
as if the responsibility to represent enlightened views had been thrust upon me by my peers and superiors acting together in open concord
I will cast a mean look at my life
I will throw a mean look my own way—even two
I still can’t help it: Hope and dreams dowse my repentance in nectar; the niceness but noblesse oblige
at a point of depression.
