Selfish

Yes.
I admit that.
I’m honest.
But it’s not about
your choice of table napkins.

Really,
Stop looking so offended.
Honestly,
It’s nothing to do with you.

I snapped at you
Because orange is obviously
Not
The correct napkin color,
But
Keep your nose out
Because this isn’t about you.

That girl didn’t smile at me today.
He waved with an awkward nod.
She told me about her cat.
My parents are divorced.
I learned that frogs do in fact have ears.

So don’t look so disgruntled by my reprimands,
They weren’t about you anyway.
