#1
I went through all the stages of grief,
I just did them ass backwards.
Must have missed the part,
where we'd meet in the middle.

My lungs feel like fiberglass
when I breathe.
In
and
out
in
and
out
in and out.
"Calm down" they said,
but they're always saying things
that don't make any goddamn sense.
They even think
that kids are the ones saying the darndest things.

I made a resolution, sure.
Don't we all?
I'm sure you did too.
I'll bet this year you were gonna be
nicer
smarter
selfless
honest
Well so was I,
then the weather changed.
Twenty below
is a good time for a drink.
I wish I could recapture
the innocence of a child,
but twenty below,
is a horrible time for an ice cream cone.
