'Sucking It Up' by Lynn White

Suck it up I said.


You missed that bit

which means I’ll have to engage

in a struggle to dismantle you

and then put you back together

with all your bits facing

the right direction.

Suck it up I said.

Oh no!

That was too strong,

there goes the rug

consumed by you again!

What are you trying to prove?

There was really no need

to exert your full power

in that situation.

I think I’ll turn you off.


it’s me who has the power

when push comes to shove.
