It’s Basically Like This (poem)

I’m not entirely sure who this woman speaking is, but she’s got her friend’s back…and she’s pissed.

It’s Basically Like This

I’ll sign the fucking get-well card
for the world’s worst human
still masquerading as your tick-tock
man, timely as a funeral, garbed
in royal purple, even with lines
embedded in his veins like light-bulb
filaments lighting him the hell up
for pity’s sake and to turn you on—
but as soon as he’s clear of the hospital,
I’ll do my best to put his ass back there.

    1. Ha! Glad you liked it…and she is a true bff. I was just writing random things, and her voice came out. I like when that happens.
