cold blood.

I believe what we conceal
         reveals our soul
            & we put great energy
                           into keeping the lights off
                      [past due__________
                          on the proverbial
                                         bill/signature required]
                        but

           I’m all out of fucks, I’m afraid
     too ready for quick endings
       I am a poetry wraith
                  I am scarcely graceful
           a lack of tact or timing
                    pink tongue glazed in hokum

        Mother Theresa would’ve
                      given you a warning
             my spirit is nameless,
                  but it reacts to sang-froid

                               –LM
