Right this minute
I am annoyed at how badly I use time
as if there is plenty, as if I have a secret.
Yes, I do have something to keep
from you, there are infinite reasons.
Twenty-nine years ago (right now)
my water broke a day early (gross)
Nothing has been the same since,
with great pain comes responsibility.
I’m tired of checking your breathing
waiting to hear your car door shut,
There must be a statute to limit
your expectations of how I can help.
Apologies your father isn’t taller,
you're welcome for the Palmer charm.
In the end you were cut out of me,
now let go of the goddamned apron!
