NaPoWriMo 9

I have to fight the angry, red-faced person in my head who's loudly whining, "Don't hit publish! It's awful and it's under-developed and it's not done and it's just... bad!" But, that's not the spirit of NaPoWriMo.So. 


so many things They don't tell you
in the little cards that come with flowers,
on the tummies of teddies,
or in the comforting, moldy pages of a borrowed book 
about the aches and gore
about the neverending where the hell did this come from?
this distraction from inside out
realizing your name is everyone else's name too
you find deficiencies
inabilities to be mended
knowledge to be appended
every room upended
and the time you would have used to give a crap 
is better spent taking a nap
years of clothing and not a damn thing to get dressed in
unseen abilities manifesting
like finding out how many things you can do 
while peeing
--it's surprising and impressive--
better left untweeted
you just have to be there
to know
