Cold Shoulder

“get them, before
they get
you,”

yeah?

and where did that
flight land
you?

..collapsed here
on this cold
couch..

shedding $200 by
the hour to
watch
me

nod my head
and jot my
threats,

all sneaky into
shielded
pad,

shadow over my
shoulder..

pins your worst
failures
on..

dead old
dad,

couldn’t spare you back
then and can’t
save you
now,

i probe
and..

poke you deep in
the bruise for
as long
as

you allow.

many competent and gifted therapists practice professionally but really, who better to talk me through an issue like an open hearted and clear minded me?
