i'll be back at it, dirty and reckless

when
my head
and my heart
they of their
conflicting agendas
and failures
to communicate
get on
the same page
with
haley’s comet-ian
frequency
the timing is
all ways
shockingly
destructively
wrong
and
to the best of
my overrated knowledge
they haven’t
created
a home makeover show
that teaches
how to fix
this
week
grout your tiles
drywall like a pro
fuckingfigureyourloveshitout
still
the words
rub dirt on themselves
and stumble out
less power
less stamina
less
optimism
occasionally landing on
almost clever
you know
give or take
trying to see all
the ways they could be interpreted
trying to lessen
the damage beforehand
can’t be done
right
silent (un)dress rehearsals
needing to be
understood
expecting too much
still
the words
stumble out
i don’t hear
yours
