Because I’m Human
I woke up hungry
and not because I hadn’t eaten the night before.
I did. Okay, I really did.
Still, my stomach made noises right away,
and not those painful ones accompanied by growls.
I didn’t deny myself anything last night,
and yet the reminder before things get crazy,
before I become really mad,
and not able to control myself continued.
First things must come first.
I must brush the nasty taste out of my mouth,
and rid myself of what I drank the previous day.
No one likes cotton mouth.
No one likes bad breath.
No one likes to hold it.
No eggs. I understand.
The punishment of it all, but this was a year ago.
There must’ve been some change within me.
I know. I’m kidding myself. I know.
Open the door and look inside.
It’s the same thing.
