armed and recycled


those kids, in the back of the classroom
are mine.
At first glance, you'd think them only shadows
but between the forests of edifices
and trite breaths
you notice a lung and
maybe a heart beating and a thick leg
thumping the ground, these things creating thunder and sometimes lightning.
Yes, this adolescent with million dollar ideas
but a 50 cent mind and a quarter of a soul,
this makeshift person is mine.

I do not owe God anything. I did not ask for this.
Our future was so bright that it
burned and shriveled up into nothingness.
I hope the world ends
before I stop watching cartoons.
Either way, I promise to protect the asphalt innocence until my eyes see no more.
Yes, those shadows in the back are all mine.
blackbody juvenescence
i wanna be forever young
you may have held these griefs before,
an anthem you never tire of singing.
when I've not planted my sorrows
in anyone else and you are laying
in the garden of my wounds
with your hands in your chest and
your head full of regrets,
I want you to look at me
This means nothing but to move on
Do not be mistaken. Nothing has surprised me for years.
these are my bones.
do not touch them,
or I will become you.
if you don't plan on loving me
then leave me the hell alone
