when you tire of answering questions
cause you know you’re being placed in a box
you don’t dare remove your shoes
cause there’s s hole in your sock
your mental health specialist is nodding
as you try to speak
he gets paid while you wait three-five years for invalid and unemployment benefit legal battle briefs
when is the last time you had fun with your life?
the last time you flew a kite
when is the last time
your belly hurt when you laughed?
when is the last time you hugged your cat?
life can throw some punches
but you have to hit back
even when you’re tired
get out of the sack.
take your dog for a walk
caw with the crows
if no one answers the phone
could mean they don’t want to be home.
lonely lonelinesses loan
write, sing, dance, paint, scream
look in the mirror,
There is a queen.
