RITUAL AVERSION
(2/19/19)


society
is full
of them

empty
rites
of civilized
niceties

I would rather
stand
on the neck
of ceremony

than
suffer through
one more
meaningless
motion

one more
fallacious
phrase

I spend
my days
mainly
in silence

the eyes
of expectation
finally looking
away
from me

I spend
my nights
in solitude
