LIKE AA BUT FOR PEOPLE WHO CAN’T GET OVER IMAGINARY LOVERS

 

I want to set up a kind of group therapy
where people can come drink tap water
and listen to Fleetwood Mac
while grieving for their imaginary lovers.
I would greet them by saying, “Hi, I’m so glad
you decided to give free reign to your emotions.
Jenny Holzer would approve. We can call this performance art,
like Stevie Nicks cutting her hair on stage and eating it.
I approve of crying in public. I understand that you lost the will
to get rid of your attachment issues, so here, have a drink,
have all the drinks. Tell me everything about your exes
and yes, you can make up interactions with them
to justify your current hate for the human race.
It’s ok, I want to kick most people too.
When that happens, I take the time to hyperventilate
and share my anxieties in public in order
to avoid annihilating everyone around me.
So here, have a drink, and tell me lies,
tell me sweet little lies.”
