The Powers That Be

The main thing

That made me sympathize with the unabomber

Wasn’t his ecoterrorism (a close runner-up)

Wasn’t his limericks (c’mon)

Wasn’t even his passion

It was his sensitivity

And jus desire

To share pain.

That’s what I do

When I write my poems —

I say how I feel

I speak truth to my experiences

I speak truth to power

And for whatever reason

The powers that be

Have banned fat experience

From legitimacy.

Is it my fault

That when I describe

What happens to me

That you feel bad…?

Imagine fucking living it
