People These Days

2/3 Train Borough Hall to Nevins, July 30th, 2013

She was fuming about someone in a very fierce and articulate way. I got up the courage, interrupted the conversation, and asked if she could channel her anger into a poem. She said yes. What a quick transition. She was concentrated and calm on the train as she wrote.

People These Days

They ask I give

I ask they have a fit

I’m tired of the shit

you stupid ass witch

I love you

cause you’re my mother

But sometimes

I feel like there’s no other –

way out I’m done with you

I hope you have fun with

the stupid ass things you
