not a pep rally

Posted to Action Poetry

Don't tell me
you hope i feel better
as you walk into your Cheerios day

The holes in your vision
make it all the more hopeless
hoping as you do
that the cereal will crunch things right

It's not intentionally
cynical this good morning
nor is the blonde smiling hostess
purposefully holding onto tv grins

She walks through death counts
and potential more

You hope i feel better
as i cry for the fear
of the world

hope it all works out
hip hip hooray
