I am writing this post
to let you know that I know
that I have been doing the easy things
and I am sick to my stomach
because of guilt
and pity. Privilege is a carton box
I hide safely in, and I am afraid of not doing
anything of weight for you at all
and while I relish in the wrath of my own self-indulgence
please know that I know
and I wish to be better
