Master’s confusion, slave’s resolution

your lack of knowledge of now

obligates me to explain to you

my gen-x fucked up head

as you are baby boomer classic

i didn’t survive 80s Atlanta and 90s DC

not seeing the snakes behind me

and I don’t know what I mean to you

as a human being

you chose to interact with me

beyond the superficialities but

my growth and healing

demands that I ask you to be

honest and empathetic to me

as a human being and I know

me saying that confuses you
