To Suspire

I talk so much of dead things
(I talk too much),
I slog through lifetimes mired in it,
So it seems like suicide would be close or in the air
Or else I’d have no explanation for all this crap
I opine and emote, always repining for something else—
Who the hell knows what?—in ugly notes like this.
I’m not in line for the good stuff,
Not waiting calmly for the best,
Not even self-deceived that it could come to me
As a result of work on any given day or in this way.
I’m just making clamor to suspire, I’m just drawing fire.

Abandon hope, all ye who enter here! (At least put on your socks and pants.)
