“Tending To My Disappointment”
Tending to my disappointment,
tends to build resentment.
Like true lies,
far, far, back.
out the back,
of a used hatchback.
My conscience becomes a stowaway,
accountability thrown away.
Forever, indebted to wrongly attributed superlatives.
Do not forgive a spurious gesture.
always sells you,
gilded gifts and promised pleasure,
but, leaves you concrete pains.
The flames of fear,
until there is nothing left but dismally disappointing ashes.
