I cannot stand at docks adding tears to the sea
I’m annoyed with my sadness
Turn up my collar promptly and button trembling lips
Face circle cycles with a stern face
Kill off the cynical character in his folly.
Play his last moments on an old piano outro
Wash my face and grind my teeth
Swim without any surface in sight
Refuse to panic
Live and die in strength
Refuse to express dissatisfaction
Hold my chest in dark closets
And get over myself.
