OPENED FISTS
(11/30/14)


here

here
I am

I have
nothing
to hide

I am
an aging
disillusioned
white man

myopic

alcoholic

misanthropic

sexually diseased

socially inept

a felon

I am apathetic
about most things

most places

most ideas

all people

especially
the judgments
of my unfellowed
man

except
for brief
moments
of personal
apoplectic indignation
which some
may mistake
as mirrored
humanity

I mostly
don't care

I do care
about solitude

about
an absence
of non-solicited
pain

little
else

my life
is easy

but very
few
would live it

no one
will share it

wave
and smile
from a distance

if you must

but know
that as soon
as you are
out of sight

you are
dead
to me

you do
not
exist
in my world

I only
wish
to be left
alone

in relative
peace

the authorities
will deal
with my remains
