MISANTHROPIC LAMENT
(6/4/15)


finally
I relent

I realize
that I have
no purpose

no opportunity

without them

without
those
long fangs
of humanity
continually gnawing
that festering sore
on my ass

otherwise
I might
stop

relax

but
the pain
from that constantly
irritated
open wound
propels me
forward

onward

away
from them

beside
them

to avoid
them

to feed
upon them

to understand
absolutely
that I am
one
of them

destined
to cohabitate
this world
from birth

never actually
alone
until death
