Dear Simple-Minded Fucks
Am I talking to you?

I create
so real in you
you feel them in your gut
taste the bitterness
hear the scratching

I push
uncomfortable buttons
you, you
what you think you know

I write
beneath the surface
between the lines
in riddles
with purposeful vagueness
double entendres
pure honest truth
half lies
creative expression

Do you relate
with guilt?

Maybe I’m baring my soul
and it looks
just like yours

Maybe I’m slithering
into your mind
just to see you squirm…

    What an opening line! the “you, you” and “your mind, yours” act almost like magnets to my mind and I am drawn in closer (uncomfortably closer?..) this has a great build and flow, with wit and boldness and a mindful challenge to the reader.
