Girl Scout Cookies

Help me think through deepest day

as I wallow in the misery at night

too fucked to reach for vodka

passing around an empty box of thin mints instead

Angrily, hungrily

I don’t hate them

I don’t hate them

If I have to convince myself

Is it worth it?

Is it true?

Is it fair?

Never fair to them

never fair to us

Living life in shades of anger

Dragged through the railways of my mind
