keep it moving

you know 
when you’ve made a mistake 
hurt someone 
and you want to scream 
“bite me”
through feral teeth 

because you 
have been programmed to 
keep apologizing 
for not giving 
what people expect to take 

like a lone 
pear tree 
tempting 
and uneven 

surrounded by 
stinging 
honey bees 
because the sweetness 
is overflowing 

the ripeness 
for the taking 

I might roll my eyes 
at the whole scene 
the cycle that makes 
me stay out late
in the night 

but later want to scream 
you can’t take any part of me 

keep it moving
keep it moving
