home is self-acceptance

They’re screaming in my face

Some severely off-color remarks

Calling me every god-damned name in the book

Spouting off obscenities like a checklist of grievances

After they’re done, I simply say

Thank you, I accept this

A perplexed look and subsequent tirade later

I coerce the crux of the problem

(Incidentally it’s completely their fault)

Suddenly apologetic

Then anger again

And again, I say thank you

I accept this

Because you can’t argue with stupid irrational fuckwits

And it’s more exciting to watch their expressions change

(Mid sentence usually)

Taken aback that I’m not slashing their face open with this penknife

Merely peeling layers back

Exposing the juicy underflesh

& consuming it with glee
