You didn’t understand

they were talking about you

when they spoke of

mental illness

drugs

psychosis

treatment

hope.

But the lies you live

cover your ears

and deafen you.

You are so

accustomed to ignoring

truth and danger,

you do not see it

before your eyes.

The presenters sing

and tell their stories.

Your fingers are in your ears,

“La la la la la

I can’t hear you”

as you stomp with

vacuous determination

toward

the pit.
