Why can’t you let it go? January 24, 2016

“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?”
