"you've got a power source/it's like a solar system"

New poem, kind of a mess, kind of raw. I've been trying to write other types of stuff, but I'm fond of this.

“balance # 2”

keep me honest, but
don’t keep me too honest
my eating habits may
distract you for a while
but tonight will be fine, will be fine

i’m timid and afraid that
you’re just acting
i watch every word i say
which is really
never my normal course of business

if  i’m too careful
you’ll grow irritable and bored
but if i let loose you’ll be scared into silence
so i blance, oh i balance
everything always comes back to fucking blance
