Triolet for a Bad Obsession
After I’m got, I never want to get.
They hit the buzzer, then they lock me in
and top me with a come-on like a threat.
I never want to get unless I’ve got
no money for the getting, and no spot
to put my body while the doing’s done.
I only want to get until I’m got.
They hit the buzzer, then they lock me in.
