Tahlia  McKinnon  
COCKROACH  
 
I  
   
We’re  arguing  again.  
   
I  am  a  monster;  I  am  free.  
   
A  fool  in  pretty  shoes,  with  a  glass  half  full.  
   
You  say:  You  have  an  attitude  problem,  
   
but  I  take  it  as  a  compliment.  
   
   
II  
   
We’re  arguing  again.  
   
I  am  headless  like  a  cockroach;  I  am  reckless  as  a  flame.  
   
A  bitter  thing,  like  the  beer  we  drink.  
 
You  say:  You’re  a  dirty  book,  and  
   
one  I  wish  I’d  never  read.  
   
   
III  
   
We’re  arguing  again.  
   
I  am  a  clown;  I’m  crying  wolf  
   
But  my  sins  will  understand  me.  
   
You  say:  The  penny  jar  is  full  
   
and  there’s  no  room  for  pity.  
   
   
IV  
   
We’re  arguing  again.  
   
I  am  an  itchy  scar;  I  am  a  lighted  match  
   
And  I  will  throw  a  party  for  your  nerves.  
   

Tahlia  McKinnon  
You  say:  We  need  somewhere  to  go,  
   
but  we  have  run  out  of  places.  
   
   
V  
   
We’re  arguing  again.  
   
I  am  an  average;  I  am  double-­‐spaced  
   
and  you  read  me  like  trigonometry.  
   
You  say:  Have  your  cake  and  eat  it  
   
with  your  big  silver  spoon.  
   
   
VI  
   
We’re  arguing  again.  
   
I  am  sick  to  my  stomach;  I  am  weak  at  my  knees,  
   
and  I  don’t  know  who  I  am  anymore.  
 
You  say:  All  we  have  left  is  each  other,  
   
but  oh,  like  it  matters  anyway.
