because poems

because poems
are supposed to be
fluffy flowery things
like clouds
and puppies
and trees by the sea
(so i’ve been told)
and not
dark slashes of emotion
that burn through the page
and grab you by the throat
and squeeze
why aren’t you happy
i always hear
why so dark
so blue
so angry and full
of rage

why not?

in my head
there is a world
and i
am the queen
ruler of all that remains

because poems
are supposed to be
full of light and peace
i have been told
or have a message
for the masses
to digest
with their morning tea
how dare i
talk about blood
and the unpleasant
stink of fear

why not?
