Chicagoetry: It's Never Enough, Dear

SONNET: IT'S NEVER ENOUGH, DEAR

How I disappoint you, Mother, having
done the right thing again. Let me count the
ways! Uno: it is never enough. Dos:
never enough AGAIN, Sister, Brother,
Honey Bunches of Oats (all rights reserved).
Like a summer's day! "Oi, it's so hot out!"
Tres: you are responsible for making
yourself happy. LET ME COUNT THE WAYS! I've
got them motherfucking memorized, dear.
Smookums: smoke a joint and take a bath. Then
a large slackburger with cheese do cut me.
Now I'm going to get down on my knees:
Only those we love get the brunt of the
hurt in our own souls we keep from seeing.
