Rant

Phobia

People, nauseating

 

Air, choking the throat

 

In the night, I developed an allergy

to artificial light

Itching, scratching, until face bled

 

Finally, I escaped the past

that suffocating hole

Clogged by her

 

The most imperious

My mum

 

The most passive

My mum

 

The most ignorant

My mum

 

The person I most owe,

The poorest darling,

Unbearable

 

The most unbearable

...Myself

 

 

Do you have a phobia?

Anything which

As soon as you see it,

you scream

Helplessly

 

 

I’m afraid of chickens

Even an image of them

frightens me

 

He cracked up:

Perhaps you were a chicken in a past life

Blinded by the beak of your own kind

Therefore, in this life, you can’t even

look at them

 

No, my phobia wasn’t born

I remember watching my mum

kill a chicken when I was young

Perhaps that was her first time,

They both struggled,

It took the bird a long, long time to die

 

I’m also afraid of people.
