Good Boy

judas-goat_02

I swallowed it whole

forced it down

like a good boy

I didn’t say I was

a good boy

I said I was like

a good boy

I never let on

never complained

suppressed

and repressed

my inner rage

this ain’t the way

it’s supposed to be

cutting around

with the flesh

machine

I should be whole

if not holy

I should have

forgiven

if not

forgotten

but I feel it still

lodged in my throat

the bitter pill

and the Judas goat

.
