if i messaged myself while trying to write a poem (20170216)

breaking into a sweat–no
breaking into a swear
after the nightly walk
wait
stroll
breaking into a swear
after a twilight stroll

wouldn’t you break into a sweat during the stroll?

that’s i why changed it to swear

don’t act like you knew where this train was going
you just bought the ticket
sight unseen
you didn’t even wonder about
the direction the tracks pointed–

breaking into a swear
following the course
of our discourse

very clever

you know what? fuck off

you always resort to swearing
when you run out of things to say

that’s kind of the point
