I Don't Want To Be Nice

I don't want to pretend
things are ok all
people ok all
and that bad things never happen
or happen only to not nice people

I don't want not to see
while you're stirring
'milk and sugar'coffee spoons of your liquids
galaxies being indifference devoured within

I don't want to listen any more
to those really nice phrases
capturing sort of subtle air like
concepts of freedom equality and duty free rights
back broken grounded by some really nice pictures

I don't want to downspeed the thoughts
turn them into an instant success
I'll drink my Yes coffee Byzantine style
in no rush cultural No thank you No Ness please manner
because not being Ness nice I might still get
some life long friends

I don't want to take a nice look at the sky
marvel at it regardless the patchwork above
and fill the ozone holes with eye catching
anti hole slogans that make me feel good
about an adequate level of my civilian initiative

I don't want to be swallowed by eyes
I'll eat my food without the brand names
glittering foils and evenly cultivated over sized
shelf categorized bar coded items

I don't want to be nice

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
