Sushi

2019

"Sushi.

You're the devil.

I don't know how I wound up with you.

Well, I do, kind of...

            Some kind of evil root.

      That I was running from.

      That's how I got to you.

Sushi.  On the couch.

            The movie in the player.

The blinds oddly lifted.

             And I didn't even care.

  I wonder why I didn't care..

I feel like an alien here.

            Still...

I feel like an alien here.

I didn't want you to change me.

You did anyway.

            I don't know why.

            I don't know how.

Why did I let you in?

            But now I don't care.

            I just want you gone.

     From torturing me,

           like you did for so long.

Sushi.

You're the devil.

I don't know how I wound up with you.

Well, I do, kind of...

            Some kind of evil root.

That I was running from.

that's how I got to you.

I don't want to hate you.

I don't even want to care.

I just want to move on

And not to be a slave

            to your voice and wide stare."
