from FUCK, YOU CANCER and other poems

Rick Fields

NO
I CAN’T STAND IT ANYMORE
I CAN’T STAND IT ANYMORE
Pure explosion of rage
Big bang
Primordial fury
Atoms of anger
Exploding
Streaming out from chest
Lungs
Streaming photons
Light
You don’t turn the light
Off in the bathroom
Critical voice
You don’t don’t don’t don’t don’t
NO! STOP!
I CAN’T STAND
IT
NO - the great No
The primordial
No
I don’t want to stay
I want to gooooo
You don’t touch me
You don’t love me
No
I scream yell shout bel
Low
No
I don’t love you
NO
Great No
Primordial No
I don’t love you No
Cosmic No
Let the light
Gooooo
Fury spew forth
Phooooo Tons
Boiling stars
Molten
Big Bang
Blinding flash of light
Out of darkest deepest No
A universe
A child
Is
Torn
Noooooooo
Is born
