There’s a Bug in the Cake Mix

i’ve got it easy.
really, i do. i’ve got it
easy.
i’ve got a job
a car
a cell phone
a place to live
a family that loves me
a warm bed
plenty of food
and clothes
& even a few friends.
i don’t have to
scrounge for food
water or money.
i don’t live
on the streets
or have a terminal disease.
i’ve got it easy
really.
but there’s a bug in the cake mix
and i don’t know
what it is
but
something
inside
won’t let me be
won’t settle down
won’t shut the hell up.
some-
thing inside
is eating at me
every day: a bug in
the cake mix
and i don’t know
what it is
but it
paints
all the easy things
too-good-for-you-tim.
