shame’s skin

i have nothing but shame.
i want to do bad things
with mud between my toes,
and with destruction in mind
i swing, and strike with closed fist,
open hand, and bigoted eyes.
i steal and rape
cheat, lie and derive
no bitch’s satisfaction
from anything here, now
or then, but false promises
lost dreams, and unfulfilled
maniacal reason.
with that, i speak truths
in regretful ramblings, from
which only shame can save me
