I do not like my state of mind
I'm bitter, Querilous, unkind
I hate my legs, I hate my hands
I do not yearn for lovlier lands
I dread the dawn's recurrant light
I hate to go to bed at night
I snoot at earnest simple folk
I cannot take the gentlest joke
I find no peace in paint or type
My world is but a lot of tripe
I'm disillusioned, empty breasted
For what I think I'd be arrested
I am not sick, I am not well
My quondam dreams are shot to hell
My soul is crushed, my spirit sore
I do not like me anymore
I cavil, grumble, quarrel, grouse
I ponder on the narrow house
I shudder at the thought of men
I'm due to fall in love again.
(UNTITLED, Dorothy Parker)
