Postage due

Feels like I landed here as a hand me down
second class in a first class town,
but it won’t last forever
forever never does.

Then they looked for me in the
second sight infirmary
removed the blindfold and
I was free to see.

And then we never see
what’s
in front of us
hidden as it is by the wise
men who came from Galilee.

I could be sincere here,
cross my heart and hope
I never die,
that’s the reason if the reason’s
why, but I’m never sure if it is.

still feel at that awkward age
angst instead of rage,
not anything different
really.
