This One Stays Ugly

But never forget that you’re always still
a failure; the truth could happen at any time
as you reveal your tarnish, as everything becomes
rootless. Don’t forget failure. It rides in your back,
low, the spot that could always discredit you,
belittle you and cripple you, if we’re really using
words. This is not about positivity. This one
will not take a sudden turn toward grace;
it stays ugly, no matter how I try.
