We Are Poets

I like how we are all poets
original writers
with different taste buds
and bites of reality that is
unique to
who we are
what we know
where we’ve been
and where we’re going.

Lab Rats

Our education system is jacked up.
They teach our children
what they think they should know.
The system wants to dumb them down
so they can be the next generation
to join the general assembly line.
Talent doesn’t mean much these days.
It’s who “you” know.

True or False.

(His) Pet Peeve

Clingy. I wasn’t trying to be.
I gave you as much room to breathe as I could.
I knew you needed your space
and I didn’t want to constantly invade your territory
but you never saw it that way.
You thought that I was choking you.
