the question is not

the question is not

questions not working,
we try to help
by asking this question,
“just ask for help”,
with what?

“you need to yelp”,

“what is wrong?”

it’s not so strong,
“get over yourself.”

so I stopped asking for help.

all answers surrendered correct,
the quietest of cries
from want of neglect.

“I must be alone”,
excuses the truly
loneliest excuse to me.
