  • I am so pissed today so God,
    outpace me. Beat me to the supermarket.
    Be waiting for me there so I don’t accidentally
    ram my cart into the slow lady in Aisle 3 or make
    a child cry by the potatoes. I am angry and hateful and have
    for some reason chosen this horridness
    as my special mood today, so God,
    outpace me. Run interference
    because I’m blind as a bat today,
    willfully so; and I can’t find
    the need to care. And while
    I’m just a poor mutt in a world of poor
    sad mutts, bless me.
    anoint me. I’ll get back to you again soon.
    When I’m nicer. Finer. Spun
    from a specialer essence. Or maybe
    when I am even worse than this. Amen.
