Private War

a crumudgeon lives under my skin

nothing is good, nothing is right

there is more of anything wrong

more sickness, more evil,

more swearing, more breakdowns,

more thiefs, more crooks,

more, more, more

there is less too

less compliments, less thank yous

less smiling, less companionship

less achievement, less enjoyment

just less

It is like a contest in ugly

who wants to compete?

I don’t

he spent years burrowing in

by pushing my sacred out

I need giant tweezers

and a spine?

can we reside side by side

if I put on heavy armor?

deaf, mute, and blind

to the spiral death call
