Plaintiff Jefferson

by mxiris

I hereby sign my affidavit
Ex parte.
I am guardian ad litem
To myself.
Yet in distancing disgrace, I dub I
My mind is the liber to
His exploitations.
I presently plea guilty
Pro se:

Time has compounded his offense
beyond penitence.
‘Twas not the action,
‘Twas the reaction-his sale of
emotional bonds,
that is my grieving debt.

As he decays into me,
sheds yet another skin
only to find the one beneath
is still more odious,
there will soon be
nothing more atop
my heart and bones and soul
To shelter me from the cold and the truth.

Do I fret excessively or inadequately
Over 2 stolen dollars?
