A taunt from Hobbes

“You’re doing okay for an ex-addict
gay man who didn’t go to middle school
and was raised by a brain-damaged mother
and a schizophrenic aunt in a filthy house.”

That whine you make—that whine you feel
is the spoiling of the universe,
is a species-wide phenomenon your brain
is privileged enough to suffer under.

How exult the capitalists! How scarce
the senses when the sunlight glances
in your window and you don’t know enough
to thank it for witnessing you anyway.
