Burn

Burn, burn.

Live by example;
checks
and
balances.

Burn, burn.

Burn the impurities away.
And if you can’t remember that,
remember this day;
remember
what made you
write this;
remember
requirement
is not
a vice,

remember
how many
nights like this
you’ve brought close
to your
simpering
lips,
sipping
on it–

Burn. You are burning.

and if that means
playing
on your pallette
before going on display,
you can be
ok
with that.

be
in this moment,
even if
this moment
is crap

Don’t
decide against it.
Don’t listen
to the creatures
who need your rent,
that won’t be unput.
They breed in your lamentation.
They’re ego’s soiled feet–
let the litany work against them.

the one about ‘I will not…’

Because
the other half
of everything
is what
you’ve
for
gotten

Because
all of the
shit
is
an
illusion

This is
someone
else
telling
you.
