Being Me

I wake up and my head spins with
what-I-did-wrong
what-I-should-have-done
what-I-should-do
what-I-could-have-done

I remember that I am not
a should've-would've-could've girl

But I should myself to death

Then I remember there is a pill for this
not to change my shoulding so much,
but to slow down my head
one should at a time

I repent for the mislabeling of people
I repent for the customer mistake
I repent for the mistakes of language and labor
I repent

The pill makes me sleepy
I slow down

I slog through the necessary
I do the laundry
I go to work
I grocery shop

I slog slog slog
And soon here I am
Me
Whether anyone likes me or not
