Failed Delivery Attempts

Pretty speech

Empty actions

I stay away

From deserted performances

Spare tires without air

When you need help

Or just conversation


We all have caused exceptions


When I point my fingers

There is always one aimed at me

Angry outbursts revealed

After thought I see how I’ve done the same

Different crayon

Different colors

Same picture

A tad bit different from the others

Do you change your walk or strut

In your exceptions




Or shrug opportunities to change


Or hiss at the rules

Lawless until you’re totally broken

Ears closed until mercy won’t speak, doors unopened

I’ll take someone who tries

Over a scoffer with no remorse, arrogance home to a guaranteed demise

Sometimes it’s after the last curtain goodbye.
