Retractions

Here I sit with not one fake mother fucker in my face.

I’ll humbly admit that there are some days I shift.

I’ll suggest something I don’t agree with

and when I become conscious of my falseness,

I retract it as quickly as I can.

It’s just much easier

to be elsewhere in my mind

and follow suit with my mouth.

Being aware of me at all times

is quite a bit of work.

I assume it is for most day dreamers.
