Dead Weight.

DEAD WEIGHT.
THERE IS A LIMIT TO HOW MUCH YOU CAN SHOULDER,
ISN’T THERE?
JUST ABOUT WHEN
WILL YOUR BACK LEAN UP AGAINST A WALL,
CRACKING JOKES ABOUT THE YOUNG
TEACHING BOYS TO CARRY LAUNDRY.
BABIES WEIGH.
SHAKE THE WORLD OFF YOUR SHOULDER
AND PICK UP ONLY WHAT’S YOURS.
THE SHAME
AND THE PRIDE.
CARRY WHATEVER IS YOURS.
