Loving Your Own

Take what isn’t yours and run!
Stolen things are better in
mixed company. So gather
false friends and family, you
know, the ones who support you,
come what may. Your real friends aren’t
friends when they tell you you’re wrong.
They’re tedious, big brothers
just waiting for you to cave
and betray your god-awful
feelings of confident grief:
You were born in the wrong way.
