i have one more thing to say for tonight, and then i will go overdose on sylvia plath. ahahahahaha.

once they figured out how
easy it is to make me jump,
they started sneaking up on me.

they tap me on the shoulder or
come up behind me when i'm
trying to do my goddamn job
and i turn and see them and i -
bam -
jump and go ahhhh!

then of course they laugh and i
laugh right along with them and
turn it into a joke,


but sometimes i come pretty close to screaming
for real and today i almost blurted,

do you want to know why i jump so easy?

and spilling the whole sordid tale
about my daddy issues
(but instead i laughed it off again.)
