Heartburn

Everywhere I looked today I saw rejection.

Every hello was preface to “good-bye,”

Every smile, a scheme in disguise.

Every frown was meant for me.

Every possible could not be.

Every eye, hollow

Every friend, shallow

Every brow, furrowed

Every hand, burrowed

in a pocket.

Backs turned,

“bread” burned,

indigestion.

Because life can be hard to swallow.
