disfigurements

ugly child why does
your mother love you rich
man why are you arms so
short beautiful man why
do you overlook me beautiful
woman why do you paint
yourself happy happy
why do you smile
mistaken why do you erase
yourself secure why
don’t you pause when

I could kill you with one poem?

Labels: ,

could be very risky
to say

hello
