GOD’S THROAT

If i
could
would
slit god’s
throat
with
sympathy
not my own
in time
to weigh
my soul

am i
not
always
empty

by the
time

you
get

to
me?

secretly
love you all
these blues for now
without a heads up
penny made friends
in vain that yell out
loud has to slow down
awake in dreams
awake in dreams in love
she said stop acting insane
awake we all suffer
kiss her every time
like the first time we met
remember how the fire
burned me as well
afraid to wear a heart on a sleeve

i
grew
up
southern
Baptist

Purgatory
sounds
cool
to
me

beautiful people

everywhere

remind me how

ugly i am

forgot  to count
the change
in my
pocket as
someone everyday
is asking me
for a dollar

sometimes it’s how
much can you
take, she asked me
how much have you
drank today?

I asked her
how much do
you weigh?
