Pliers. / by Dr. Tyrone Ceaser

pliers
Such a tight grip on shame and guilt.
Such a tight grip on human perception and human weaknesses.
Such a tight grip on disgrace, loyalty, pride, and lust.
Such a tight grip on selfishness, confidence, ambition, race, competition, perseverance, and etiquette.
Such a tight grip on vocation, productivity, efficiency, and production.
Such a tight grip on care, worry, concern, future, notions, theories, and true.
Such a tight grip on flesh, capacity, her, him, and them.
I think I’ll let go now.
— Tyrone
