my lady gaga

I just realized
that my troubles
come in doubles,
but yours come in triples;
so I am extending to you
my condolences
on your most recent tragedies,
the shit that happened to you
that won't be seen as comedies
on the small screen;
the stuff that really could get you
loosened, even if on a binge:
the sort of maladies
that discard all those vanities:
like you ever needed a mask,
you just needed a task.

December 30, 2009, for the Wifey.
