Kimchi is not an actress

Aversion therapy
must be good for me,

in the social mist
and I’m
not even drunk
(pissed was too obvious)

It’s going well.

Forget about the holidays,
in fact, forget all the days
between here and the exit to
the social haze.

There is no magic bullet
no money tree,
just my leg and you
have to pull it,

the joke is on me
there’s no such thing
aversion therapy,

don’t let them fool you.
