I Feel

A poem

I feel
As if someone
Gave me their shoes
And said “Fit.”
As if the Moon
Looked down on me and said “Come.”
As if the rain
Poured down on me
And said “Dry up.”
As if I never left home
And was asked
“Where are you going?”
As if the answers
To a multiple choice question
a) How the fuck should I know? and
b) All of the above.
As if tears meant
“Thank you”
“Fuck off”
“I want out”
“I want in”
“I don’t know”
“I give up”
“Help me”…
