Aren’t you tired of the same old arguments?
The familiar narratives about the world
And your place in it?
Cynicism is heavy
And ‘seeing through everything’
Gets old after a while.
You are not obligated
To perpetuate your poorest choices-
The future makes no such demands.
And you’ve been that way for a while,
So why play it cool
And act like you’re okay?
And scratch some more
Like your life depends on it-
Because maybe it does.
