progress

i want out but i’m here
stranded in fuck-ville
all car-less, broke, and broken
i never considered the possibility
of a desert island masquerading
as a coastal suburb
and it’s not the worst place
but people i don’t recognize
are asking me about the roof squirrel
they seem to know too much
about my routine
for just giving me their name
and i’m feeling like a lab mouse
trapped in a small wire cage
in an airless container
the animal instinct
has me gnawing myself bloody
while some supposed impartial
monitors how long it will take
for the organism to suffocate
