specifically and for long

enough to contextualize

your relatively small role

in their future America

people with personality

disorders are often told

to take care of themselves

as they would a loved one

maybe we examine as a society

who we love and why and argue

full tilt all empty then full then empty

again and again until it gets typed like

dna locked into our collective bloodstream

or maybe I shut up about it

or you do and then your family

does and we are back here again

where life is cheap and it is inexpensive

for you to keep looking for some kind of good

behind the curtain of the great and powerful Oz
