I MADE UP MY MIND TO HATE THE WORLD TODAY ~ BOJANA STOJCIC

today I hate people with exuberant smiles
and a lighthearted disposition
people lavish in their praise and profuse in thanks
today I don’t accept apologies
I don’t need analogies
today I hate full pages of your lives in technicolor
abundantly illustrated with exclamation marks
today I hate your priceless
memories, porcelain compliments and
your time flying like space rockets
today I hate your plastic Jesus on the mantelpiece
I hate your starry skies and
wave height forecasts in the Pacific
today I hate your piquant dreams and spotless family values
your impenetrable woods and busty secretaries
with an aging obsession
today I hate ha-ha anecdotes and phrases
degenerating to clichés
today I hate cut-and-dried dialogues and
unnecessary fireworks
today I hate obvious truths
today I hate myself
(remind me why you love me today)

  1. How do you continue to do this? Every phrase. Every line is so perfect. You set me up and move me like some piece on a chessboard. I am helpless to you and your words and wishes. Then…just when and why I think you have me where I am, you pick me up by my hair and drop me somewhere else.

    Just fucking wow!!!!!

  2. I love the determination and decisiveness of this…..and then the end takes my breath away with it’s vulnerability and sorrow. This, for me, is you Bojana; you are both strength and vulnerability. You are breaking through boundaries and experimenting so beautifully.
