NC-17

Hate
wriggles, slithers, squirms between the neurons
itches like fleas, like lice
sticks to the teeth of my comb.

I feel you.
I see you.
I pick you out
prick
the tip of a pin
annoying singe across a finger
jerk
quick from the scorch
the daily
creep
of negative
worms.

Intolerance is contagion is disease.

It mets, it eats your brain—both hemispheres.

Do not give it to me.

I choked on that shit a long time ago,
I threw that shit against the wall, grab-and-go bytes of shit, poisonous shit, served-up, forced-fed shit, biggest spoonfuls of shit
ever swallowed.

You mean you don’t swallow?
Shit.
No, I don’t swallow shit.
Do you??

Crazy to think I won’t jump on the hate train.
Cra-cra-crazier to think
I think
for myself.
