Today, Briefly, Trying to Be Good

Forcing myself into the death chair,
thinking, now I’ve got it, now I will do

what it is I lie to myself about being
mandatory, feeling so disciplined when

really, I’m alarmed at how close to
nothingness I have become, and that

dark crevice where inspiration lies
is filled with contempt for being,

and the doctor might try, but the
required self hatred fills the hole.

    “now I will do

    what it is I lie to myself about being
    mandatory”

    I like this, I feel this.

    but the
    required self hatred fills the hole.

    It may be relentless and imposing but it is required only by the soul eaters.
