Time & Place

Were it any other time
at any other place
I might have been more forgiving,
more willing
to share that crunchy cookie of compromise.

I’d have felt less righteous
more self-conscious.
Even after all your simply ridiculous behavior,
I’d have been prepared to make compromises,
but you made a mistake,
I think,
trying this here,
where I endure.
Here, where I thrive.
Here, in my place of power.

Also, it’s late
and I get cranky,
so you’re fucking with me here and now
was a poor choice for our upcoming battle
– and, rest assured, the battle is coming.
I am prepared to defend myself
Try me, please:
Ask me once more
if I wouldn’t rather the deluxe.
