it was obvious

i was in pain over life and just breathin was hard
i was reading Franny
then Zooey

i was falling asleep
listening to the world series

bathtubs and smokes
ashes and water and
manuscripts too

nothing’s like 1955 anymore
but reading
listening to the world series
falling asleep

i was in pain over life
just breathin was hard
someone and their make america great again campaign
make america hate again

make america
force america
love america
hate america

we would be stronger together
our future president proclaimed
my boyfriend kept calling and calling
the ringer was off and
it was obvious

i gathered strength
all alone

i was thinkin about god
just thinkin about god
clasping my hands around my pillow
lying on my side

made the pain somewhat
made the pain
subside
