It’s A Lot

Thursday, February 8, 2018

I wondered what “content” meant.
Contentment. And I wondered
how I’d labored, lumbered
homeward under rain and thunder.
None of us know “resent” meant,
and yet our resentment flourished
even as we were overnourished.
Our cocktail cups burnished.
Our attitude girlish.
And I wished
I’d listened harder in grade school.
Wished i’d taken notes instead
of learning by rote
like a damn goat.
