Toothache :)

I want to write an ugly poem about
it that is fully artificial
a temporary edifice in broken verse
I want to reinvent every word to prey
and rape the makers of my pain

I want to kill the little man who reads the pain to me
turn off his sound and wait and see
and then kill also, his comedy

do you know a name? (parental guidance advised)

every Monday i wake up with with a pain that i am not allowed to call pain
some subconsciousness has conspired to destroy whatever vital ambition

i hate this fucking show but i am not allowed to turn it off

week by week my life is rotting away
i have lost all interest and inspiration but i still get it up

so neither am i allowed to call it a depression
do you know a name?
