Angrily Untitled

I’m a goddam
optimistic idiot.
27 years
hasn’t taught me
one fucking thing
about putting up
the right defenses.
People are as murky
as pond water–
all green algae
and snapping turtles;
unpredictable.
How does one
build defenses for that?
I’m not a coder,
a strategist,
military minded.
I’m a girl.
I do not wrestle doves.
Words are my world;
and all it took was
a few uttered by you
to collapse
whole alphabets
and civilizations
built on libraries
of my thought.
