that says the same thing every time
like a book that's done been read
it says, Tread lightly for as quickly as the moment will arise
you will be wishing you had waited
for that worth-the-wait surprise
so i tell the eager elephant
to shut the fuck up with its I-told-you-so's.
angels may be looking down but must they be so condescending?
like this one on my shoulder, or the one on the elephant's back
riding, chiding me for things i don't feel make mistakes
but nonetheless heed consequences
