i had a brother once
and i don't know what his name was but my mother does
sheer weight of my shame. you cried but no one came and the water filled your
i laid you in your grave, your sweet young skin was shining then too.
another coughing, shaking fit in a bathroom that is spinning.
sickness and sleep turning me cold.
where the selfishly sick and self absorbed are welcome.
i was drunk in a phone booth.
and through the screams of the traffic voices carried saying
on a day so gray its black inside
in a coma you don't dream you just hope that someone sits with you
before you turn and walk away it has changed you
another coughing, shaking fit in a bathroom that is spinning.
