volume

If I could just turn myself down
a little
sometimes off
that inner voice at volume
can really put a hole
in my good sock day
that inner scold
has such a memory on it
all the shit I got wrong
the shit things I did
&
the shit things others did
its hard work to forgive
me, myself, them
just a little knob
to turn down to a whisper
just behind my third ear
&
while I’m about this
hows’about a contact lens
for my third eye
to see what’s really going on?
