He comes with a cape

He comes with a cape
or not.
But always, so far
he comes.
 
Growing wiser, maybe.
Growing older, maybe.
Growing, maybe.
But always, so far
he comes.
 
He pretends.
He forces me to pretend
with him.
 
I have complained.  I'll say
I can no longer play.  I'll say
not today.  Too much is going on
today or not enough.
 
I wish, sometimes,
I could simply turn my back
and he would disappear,
or, sometimes, I think
it would be better if he just
died
the way I've seen so many of his
sisters and brothers wasted
in the land of put away, left
behind.
 
Then I wonder
that I
could ever,
even now,
have such suicidal thoughts,
and realize, as I have
realized so many other times,
that death is not the answer.
 
He moves knowing he's
playing with my head.  Knowing
that I will, goodly or badly, play
his game, alright.  He plays me
like I'm a poet struggling, and he
the dumb blank page.
 
I play the poet
filling the page
line by unremarkable line,
until the time he becomes
sated or bored
and leaves me
with the detritus
of our play.  Leaves me
to trim the fat and to
pick at the bones.
