Turn Off Your Kid

I know you don’t like me,
and my blinking
twitching
turn off that bloody water,
go to bed–
sleep-
shut up THOUGHTS
is learning to be okay with that.

Okay that you
don’t like me.
Like…really, don’t like me.
Not just me saying so
to illicit pity
because the noise,
shut up, turn it off–
the light, the dark–
just leave me alone
and why are there flies?
Things breeding and living
in every space
of this place…

Our old home
and now my haunt.

Because now I know
you don’t like me.
And I finally mean it
not to justify
but to rectify
the reason why you aren’t
my Dad.

Now please get your kid
to shut up
and turn off.
