Preservation

I take care of myself
to be prepared for the next sap
who says he wants to
“audit my life”
and make sure I get treated the way I deserve.

In short,
I take of care of myself,
because you didn’t when you
said you would.
I take care of myself because
you ran
when you promised you’d stay.

I take care of myself
because
I have a feeling
they’ll all do the same thing.

But if I’m ready,
it’ll hurt less this way.
