Calm Now, Calm

I’m burnt and pissed and

can’t seem to find the upside.

A good sleep might do me well,

but I never sleep well

and the attempt is futile.


I need a friend and a vacation

and nothing but beach and sex,

or maybe just some days doing nothing,

or any days far from here.


I’m burnt and pissed

and can’t get a good meal.

Haven’t seen a vegetable in months.

I want Mom’s lasagna.


I need a shake-up.

I need a break-up.

I’m in need and

I know it.



I ask for very little

but that little is

so elusive.


I got rage.

I’m rabid.

If I wasn’t burnt,

I’d still be pissed.


I’d punch.

I’d kick.

I’d steal a car,

swing by my boss’ house,

slap him across his bitch face,

and I’d drive.


I’d drive to the end.



About npeligeiro

N. Peligeiro is still trying his hand at teaching and learns more as he goes. He doesn’t subscribe to that whole “those who can’t do, teach” theory and he repents for being less than a model student back in Minnesota when he was young and knew he knew it all. Currently Mr. Peligeiro is probably somewhere in South America, but it’s hard to say because he moves around a lot and burns through money because he has a space between his two front teeth that he hasn’t gotten fixed yet even though an old Chinese sage told him it was bad physiognomy and he’d always have financial problems while the space remained. He likes to write when he’s got something to say. When he doesn’t he keeps his mouth shut and his pen capped.
