!MeMeMe . . . ! (a tonal drawing written in poetic form)

!MeMeMeMeMeMe!Me! . . .

HELL NO! can’t afford seeing you
and i’m doing all i can so
keeping you from seeing me
and doing all them other things
so making how it’s ‘sposed to be
can’t gon be counting no body else
but this one we calling !me!

aint no longer pretending
i’m caring about some how and why
i’m screaming!me!
echoing there in yo’ head
here in your head all the time
deeper on deeper mo’ deeper on down
so nothing here but ME’s be’n heard

this endless perverse-nationing renown
accumulate’n all in up’n’under our ruse
we needing a new brand new kinda muse
dat aint ah’humming and ah’sanging
and ah’drumming no blues

so what’s left for me to be saying
‘cept keep yo’ ass here way on over there
on outa my goddamn way!
‘less’n you gon be here ah’chanting
real real loud about !me!
