Not me.

Turn the other…I’m trying to learn
how to love evil, to embrace
hate, to be that impossible person
because we’re supposed to
(someone impossible
said once)…but…
there is so much beauty and
stupidly obvious goodness, so
much other
than hate/evil; it seems like
it is immaterial
needless unless we acknowledge
that we give a shit
I don’t

I don’t want evil to exist
to flourish
to be in mind, head, soul
to be allowed
so I refuse to notice, to
mind, to care…to
evil hate danger death corruption
a place inside, a warm spot, a
cozy alcove in my heart
I simply refuse
to be that
impossible person.
