Pick me up
So I can
Begin Today
This is where
I was left

Having given purpose for a day
I’m glad I did
Hope I fixed
The way I’d imagined
Since we never try to remember

You thought I’d stay down
Remain silent
You know me better than

If you hate it
Stop helping me load this gun
But ain’t it shiny?
Yeah I like shiny shit too
‘S why I like you

Pick me up
I’m not going to
You need me like I am
And I need to begin

There just may
A poem in
Here somewhere
Esoteric rubber bullets directly striking

If you don’t pick me up
I’ll have to begin

From down here
