nobody’s fault

nobody’s fault

it’s nobody’s fault
that it’s like this
dirty grungy needy certain
inevitable
like a frightened dog in a storm
whimpering and yapping in the corner
chasing its tail and thwacking the wall
with its confused rump

it’s not anyone’s fault
that we’re made this way
dirty grungy needy certain
of what must follow
like a thunderstorm overhead
and all around pelting the walls
after we’ve run around the house
to shut all the windows
even the old stuck ones

let it be
let it come
or go
depending
on where
we do or don’t
end up belonging
