i n a d e q u a t e

try to forget
the ages of conditioning
decades of indoctrination

resurrect the passion
inhale the spirit
exhale the terms & conditions

try to love
but always a consequence
inadequate is my middle name

am I irresponsible
or ill-fitting
or just disrespected

mock the response
but it is my own question
am I getting anything done?

I fester well
under the words
of a beloved caretaker

until the caretaker
becomes my voice
and I am

my own poison.
