Words

Purveyors of guilt-land
doling it out in measured doses.
‘here’s some for you…
and plenty for you’
shoulds and should nots
shame and blame
there’s plenty to go around.
don’t worry, you’ll get your share.
seeming innocous words
slender snaky tendrils that creep
and spread
then wrap ropey tentacles around vital places
and choke.
armed with pruning shears sharpened
with truth and hope,
i cannot snip away each new shoot.
‘ah, there you are’
implanted in my head.
