Egotistical Letter


Come on now wakey wakey

I write myself to you,
do you demand immediate satisfaction,
do you buy into implosives
completely illogical without a sense of time
pure aggression primarily sexual.

Paint you in
denial
displacement
infactualization
fantasy
compensation
rejection
rational ization
reaction
inflammation
regression
repression
and information

So how have you been
undoing what you did
suppressing emotion
you may be the splitting image of my ideal person
it’s not okay to dissociate

Paint you in
denial
displacement
infactualization
fantasy
compensation
rejection
rational ization
reaction
inflammation
regression
repression
and information
