angst cycle (iii) — [T] (i)

a couple of days
fucked off work
the depression’s hit

it ain’t bright lights
from beneath the cellar
enticement to dive in the pit
it’s just a lack
of bloody enthusiasm

the person i’d talk to
is down herself
and she’s the kind
who will dive into the pit
so i can’t

i’ve prepared
a fucking brilliant chapbook
and quite a good one
i’ve two more to come
one damn good
one i don’t know

that should cheer me

got a serious
academic review

that should cheer me
