Hot on the Trail of a Fire Ant.

Track it down, trace
it back in your mind:

what made
you say
that to yourself?

Who else
would you be cold-hearted
enough to talk
to like that?

No one.

With others
you would be empathic
and hypersensitive
to the emotions sensed,

manipulate the situation
to ensure reactions
were as pleasant
as possible.

Steer it all
against the chaotic
feedback.

Here? The claws
come out,
sharp and thirsty
to lacerate
the walls
within your thick
head.

Why here?
Why the ravenous hate?

Why are you so fucking
hard on yourself?
