I’m too fucked up

to care


& all I heard

was write like Keats

& make the bleeding hearts

cream in their jeans.


But that just

wasn’t my scene

to bootleg emotion

& sell it in a bottle

at premium cost.


Duty free love

wasn’t available

& I ended up

in a mess again.


I’ll make them wade

through the muck

just to find

that one singular jewel.
