Fight Your Defeatist

Your voice screeched
echoing long nails along
a fucking chalkboard.
I missed class,
skipped a date,
smoked a joint
instead of making a point.
I crumbled over
a metaphor
before coming home
way too late.
I’m the only
one in my face,
beating myself up
more than I’d allow
my arch-nemesis, so it’s my turn to defeat you.
