There is no such thing as high functioning

There is no such thing as high functioning

Or low functioning

There is only pretending

Or can’t pretend.

There is only “productive” or “not productive”

There is only commodity or consumer.

 

There is no such thing as high functioning

Just tightened chests in an office

Or a classroom

And quiet calls to therapists because your wrists are burning today

There is only “You look great”

Or “get better”

And “I never knew”

Or “Stay Away.”

 

There is no such thing as high functioning

Or low functioning

Just a bunch of coils

Deciding to live today.
