politics and the grit.
the dirt in my teeth.
the miles of junk food i did eat.
i am a survivor
of canned food and microwavable dinners.
which did not win me years.
memory masking the toxins inside.
no fame here.
just one lame duck citizen.
bred to be non-effective.
the poisons are everywhere
inside my internal systems.
they live inside my body where I store them.
i am so tired of being poisoned.
i’ve quit eating meat.
i’ve quit eating dairy.
i ride my bike to work.
quit it all, not just for the benefit of me
but for the benefit of my progeny.
my carbon footprint is now small.
the guilt that has been lifted, worth it all.
no more moral tax.
no one to look at me and say to themselves, “look how fat.”
no more rounded belly or joints.
no more Weebble Wobble father for my children.
i am an awakened conscious human not looking to be led.
i am looking within and doing what i have always said.
because no more lip service is needed
for the environment and my body can feel it.
