Great Escape

Everyone has one: a breaking point—
beyond which no apology will suffice
and no amount of money
could erase or even ease
the daily burden of carrying
another human being’s indifference—
and just because you aren’t getting
the shit beat out of you this time around
doesn’t mean you aren’t going to bed
with bruises and open wounds—
accumulating enough ammunition
to ensure you won’t be coming back
after you finally reach yours.
