Hurt


It hurts. 

I don't need you
to tell me. 

I know
the word
for it. 

I know my word for it. 
I regret learning it from you. 
I regret repeating it out loud. 
I regret coming back to it. 
It is my fault.
I made it my word. 
Now I hurt. 

I don't need 
you to tell me. 

It will hurt
even worse. 

It will hurt even worse. 
It will hurt worse than childbirth. 
It will hurt worse than growing old. 
It will hurt worse than death
after death after death. 

I know the word for it. 

It will hurt worse than that. 
It won't stop hurting. 
It can't stop hurting. 
It will hurt and hurt and hurt
and it will hurt you 
and it will hurt him
and it will hurt me even worse. 

It is my fault.
I made it my word. 

Now I hurt.

Work Word & Friend


                     "Be true to your work, your word, and your friend."
                                   — Henry David Thoreau
       
       
              Looking for a duty you can easily shirk?
       Try messing with my work.
           Want a promise you can laugh at as absurd?
              Try mocking my word.
        Need commitment as deserted as a dead end?
                     Try taking on my friend.
     These three I'd give life all over again to defend.
       Its truth's in what it's for, not what it's against,
       not by what's died dead, but through what's commenced:
                            my work, my word, my friend.
