This isn’t, This is

 

This isn't a welcome mat
This is an ancient prayer rug
This isn't an apartment
This is a palace

No chairs;
no hats
These are thrones
These are crowns

I am the king of hearts
bleeding everywhere
Oh, yes it appears I have
given myself a lobotomy

I’ve fallen off the deck
with what is mightier than my sword
into a pool of dirty laundry,
as hairy as this seems

This isn't dancing
This is Darwinian growing pains
This isn't living
This isn’t dying in fashion, this is dying with style
