everyday

by hazel dickey

everyday

i feel badder than bad

im battered by things

i cant do anything about

 

i feel muted

im ruined

my symphiney is over

 

i feel unwell

sic like a dog

but dogs it seems

are weller than me

 

smarter too

they can sit when told

i cant sit down

i dont know how

ive been standing for years

 

i feel tired

exhausted of jaded things:

punctation

spelling

rhyming

and

life
