A thousand million paper cuts

Pseudo intellectual
that’s what they called me
people who’d never read more than
the tv guide
mcdonalds menu
& really
it was all my fault
I shouldn’t have been
hanging with
fucking
living
with them
get off your high horse
was another
they hated that I read
could read
understand words on a page
try to apply
knowledge over emotion
marx held no friendship
for these people
but
he certainly
knew their purpose.
