Itching for more

Aren’t you tired of the same old arguments?

The familiar narratives about the world 

And your place in it?

Cynicism is heavy

And ‘seeing through everything’

Gets old after a while. 

You are not obligated 

To perpetuate your poorest choices-

The future makes no such demands.

You’re itchy

And you’ve been that way for a while,

So why play it cool

And act like you’re okay?


And scratch some more 

Like your life depends on it-

Because maybe it does.
