Got your heart stuck in some lucky chump’s molar,
-now it’s rotting in there.
Everyone can smell it when he opens his maw,
He’s too used to the stench.
You do clinical trials
You have to. You need
A hundred to talk to a research scientist about your
Hundred fifty and drugs
for your participation in a sleep study.
Focus groups on anxiety. They’re filming you. This makes you anxious. How can you focus?
“Do you suffer from…”
That’s how the headlines always read.
Yes. You suffer. You suffer from all of it.
In fact, everything
makes you suffer. It’s the suffering
that chews at you the most.
But you’ll never read the headline
“Do you suffer from having a cunt and a heart that both need too much? Participate in our study. We can help you.”
It’s far too easy
to list all the things you suffer from,
and far too hard
to say what you suffer for.
