you said, “how’d you like to be a coroner
and identify dead people all day”
to a complete stranger
and I thought quietly I think I already do that
so I smiled, shrugged, and looked away
awaiting for my coffee to cool.

maybe you were right and
Freud’s findings don’t account for
the twenty-first century boy, oh boy
translucent boy please don’t implode
it’s not so fluorescent once you
get out of your sterile white paneled room
please get out your sterile white paneled room
let me help you out of your sterile white paneled room

I know it's hard to be vulnerable
but I just want you to feel comfortable

Don’t be disheartened take my heart
and plant it in a poorly painted pot
and water it please

not everybody leaves.
