I AM NOT THE PRINCE YOU THINK I AM
the sky screeches through
my winter window as
i rush to slap my skin back
onto my bones and string
my teeth through my gums.
he promises i will miss the bus.
(i don't)

disrespectfully,
the weather has never failed
to swallow the house whole,
rattling the blinds,
biting into door frames.

dear,
give me
my acne caked face

back.
ahhhhh
this was so

incidental.


i'm afraid i can't write any other way now.

i liked this, i like the way you express yourself.

the first line for me recalled an episode of Deadwood, which i actually happened to be watching when i read this (not the specific episode) which began with a drunken, some hours after midnight soliloquy that started off "I am not the fine man you take me for" Deadwood was the best series that has ever been produced. it added a nice tone to the piece for me.
