i’m a lay person

quit
gnawin’ on your words
just say
what you want to say.
hell with the
big words,
you
can’t paint a picture with big words
that chew up the page
chew
up the portrait painted by tongue
with no real meaning.
just
talk to me-

talk
to me with without saying
‘fuck’
every other word.
breathe
in and relax,
and lose the anger
cut
the bullshit
and prove to me
you watch
the
game
you
play the game.
i don’t
need a stats man
who doesn’t
sleep with what he
preaches.

-it’s lunch break
it’s friday
it’s a long weekend

don’t come at me
as
though
it
were
monday.
