These last five years
you know that I know
you've been playing me
like a metal axe.
I tuned myself to an open chord
just to be easy.
I've done it before.
I'll do it again.

The playpen door was open.
Your toys were out of the box.

I don't come out of this very well.

I didn't open the envelope
until later
It felt like there was a treat inside

After all these years
I'd done something right
for you
but no
like I was a dog
in training

Everyone should have
a computer and
a pet just
so they know
people are different
