My tortures of the past



Are worn down with time



Like rain on wind blasted rock



It becomes less acute



Less important



less worthwhile



and you feel stupid for taking it so seriously



yet it was there



it mattered at the time



and you are still gurgling with anger



still grinding and grimacing and gurning



bubbling with scorn, vengeance, conflict, hunger


there is a word for it



to taste its flesh between your teeth



to feed on it



until it is no more



my trembling fury lays like a shining shard of silver in the
marsh



scarring the landscape



out of place



gnawing



and all it does is squish its lips together



looks at me with spite



dirt in its eyes



“you should be ashamed” it says



Its voice lifts an octave like a little girl’s when it says
it.



A crowd has gathered with it to mock me



I am a soiled tissue picked up with the ends of its
fingertips



And it whines



I should be discarded



Disdained and reduced



Looked at with revulsion



A lesser being



I want to regurgitate my anger



My sense of helplessness



I have no right to reply



This undefinable point



Whom shall I aim it at?



The distaste



Croaking and groaning like a drunken memory



Of a loosened tongue



That is accepted



Is right



And is getting away with it



Like an insult for a stranger in the street



After they have all shut



And the sun is rising



HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA



I breathe with relief at my outburst



God I feel better for it



Fucking Cunts Fucking Pricks



Fucking



Let it out



Scream into a pillow



Shout at the sportsmen



Just don’t say that



My air hole is blocked and I cannot breathe for



Ineptitude, incorrect, insipid, incalculable, ingrate,
enclosure, in, in, in.



I’m not IN



I am incapable, incoherent, infertile, inbred



IDIOT



Taking ONE WORD and finding meaning that wasn’t really there



The banal and ordinary substitute for your own



Incorrigible, inept, incoherent



IDIOT



You are a sea of lips and no voice



INCOMPETENT!



I had to look it up in the dictionary amongst all the INS



I settled on incompetency for three months when the right
word came to me all of a sudden as I sat on a bus on the way home from a
holiday



INADEQUATE



HAAAAAAAAAAAA



INADEQUATE



HAAAAAAAAAAAA



I am INADEQUATE


IDIOT
