why can’t you let it go? November 16, 2008

“why can’t you let it go?”

like a chorus to a song

that makes you sicker

each time you hear it.

so i’m not the first who

can’t take a joke

can’t get around the rocks

in the stream without

some accident some violence.

i don’t remember anyone

leaving an instruction book

on handling things thrown

or even tossed my way.

it’s turned cold and my coat

is worn and torn and due

for replacement but there’s

no money or time to fix it,

to fix anything it seems.

all the friends and whispers

from God just bounce off

like i’m coated with teflon

like i’m covered by kevlar

like a rock with a soft core

not molten but wet and damp.

yes, i hear your voice

but i can’t listen to the love in

“why can’t you get over it?”
