NaPoWriMo #10

I started this poem yesterday but didn’t finish it until today.  I’m still not sure I’m completely done with it.

Bad Attitude

Are you having trouble losing weight?
I wasn’t trying                        trying
potions   pressures   potato
avoidance failed
pop a pill         make a baby
but, no, first testing again
testing 1, 2, 3

here we go again

a roundabout     a cage
a mess     a mess of bins
I tidy and tidy
pound fingers to the beep of plastic
the swish of cash

gaze out at the sky
and ache

defensive of words

and passive-aggressive apostrophes.
