sometimes you’re so tired
you want to cry
no one ever tells you
the clock could be
so cruel…
that the night
doesn’t like the day
that there are people
trembling just to
stay awake
I didn’t know eyes could
hurt so much from
the overuse
of prescription lenses
I didn’t know that if
you’re underactive enough,
or if you sit wrong
for too long on the couch
that your shoulder will
be fucked…
you’re just fucked
after a certain age —
the body no…
