HORNED ANGELS
(10/21/13)


when
multiple
parallel failures
begin emerging
on every front

personal
and business

(I have
no social
life)

even
an aging ostrich
must sense
through the dirt
those evident truths
of related actions
phone calls
emails
and texts

my shortcomings
are becoming exposed
by those about
my limited
sphere
of influence

they jab
at me
with pitchforks
of punitive
degree

I tire
of trying
but must summon
the energy
to at least
deal
with the reality
closing in

I understand

I really
do

they
cannot all
be crazy
as they point
to me

I am
wrong

I am
flawed

I can
only
make amends
as best as possible
then move on

they
are actually
freeing
me

to meet
my next
destiny

a better
life
far away
from their
helpful
prodding

maybe
these fuckers
are not
so bad
after all
