Wearing You Out

Filed under: Shorts — Tags: , , , , , , , , — Teepwriter @ 17:00

You’re nasty, to me.
You squashed the spider, you could’ve put it outside.
It was not in the wrong place, it was doing its best.
But I can slip out of my skin, and float – a moment – then slip back in.
It helps when I get cross, I have a little rest.
I never thought of this before, what if I float across to yours?
I could wear you like a dress, I could work your arms and legs.
So I march you to a cliff, then throw you off.
(I mean throw you off me, not into the sea.)
You’re angry and loud, your skin was too crowded.
I’m not going to fight, you look like you might.
You swipe forward, you lean backward.
No safety net, no spider’s web.
Silly person. The end.
