be gentle

daily i face gentle folks with
subterranean rages
stages of perceived hurt
seething and barely controlled
and as i brush and floss
i think of cyber grenades
that might come my way this day

from von-SIF when i will chide
surely as i must and will
'bout being delusional

from a host of friends
the one we attach an 'x'
before their names and IDs
for perceived injustices
hurled their way inadvertently

from earnest supporters
of poly-syllable causes
with which and also with whom
i would not break bread

from drivers claiming
hereditary right of way

but this kindness invoking prayer
is aimed only at a certain mistress
of my heart and body, for this morning
while pursuing bhagwan-knows-only-what
in the t-star while listening to radio
i forgot 'bout the kettle on the stove
and messed up her stove top--yet again
which she will discover upon waking
and'll get to hear 'bout when i return home

will you be gentle dear--once again?
