BITCH THEATER
(7/20/19)


why
you would
want to expend
the energy

to waste
the time

in order
to make
a simple
point

is quite
beyond
me

one
short sentence
would've saved
us both

hours

days

months

of useless
interaction

I told you
many times
that I wasn't
prone
to hints

to suggestions

just
come right
out

say
the words

I said

but you
just smiled

continued
the performance

played
your game

to finally
get us
to where
we could've been
a year ago

me free
to continue
my isolated
bliss

you free
to take your
show
on the road

to the
next

long
suffering

audience
