best served cold

you steal kindness,
tenderness.
your words are the
catalyst,
an unwitting
trigger.

(steal my kindness
and
repay me with
ice)

i am a vengeful
creature.
i think you should have
remembered,
before you went trying to
take
the best of
me.

(vengeful:
plotting for
days, weeks)

and in the end, i
decide –
you will always remember.

(remember me,
remember kindness,
remember your theft)

so i take
everything
you took;
everything
you gave

(distill it down
cure it in a crucible)

and rebuild.

i relaunch,
spiralling into the
atmosphere.
i’m everywhere –
see me on tv,
listen to me on youtube.

so i profit,
taking the worst of
you
and spinning something
i can manage.

i am immortal
now
and you –
well, no-one will
remember you.
