I marked through the word jealous in the dictionary
hoping I wouldn’t feel so.

I scratched through envy
for its hold on me was getting tight.

I blacked out anticipation
for the results rarely live up to the hype.

I erased originality
because I couldn’t think of anything new.

I tried to throw the dictionary away.
wrap up the words and dispose of their existence and meaning.
