sharing our energy

7.14.18

we pass on catty words —

that’s how we make friends,

see?

my hate is similar to your hate.

we sigh and breathe insults

at those we love or even better:

leave a gust of silence so still

it leaves puckered red marks

circling

our throats.

we have mouths that speak these

heavy words, and we become these

gory beasts instead of the gods

we think we are.

Here’s my useless energy. I’m passing it onto you.
