What makes me angry

I’d forgotten what made me angry.
It was the apathy and smugness
The intelligence and the stress

It was the two-sidedness
The politeness
And the political centrists

It was the fucking fence
The insecurity
And the stupid defensiveness

It was all those categories
The nothingness
And the flirty superficial love

It was the procrastination
The long words
And the fleeting vertigo

All this and none of it
That’s what made me angry.
I’d forgotten and didn’t see it coming.

Now I’m floored staring up at the world
Bloodied nose and eye blue going black.
Sky spinning and falling

I thought it had gone
But I’d just turned my back
Let it go on without me

It’s good to be back.
I’ve got a whole lot of work to do.
