i don't trust the billy boys

Posted to Poetry




they don't see what i already know
stop
don't do that
i already know
i have seen the dawn of
enough summers creeping
after spring
but this last water
drink
i took
tears and seawater
both
they taste like salt
it's saturday night here
and sunday is coming
and it means business
the sky we both looked at once
a half a world away
blocked out by mortar fire
and tanks and guns
and shreds of dollars
falling from the sky
you can't eat dollars
nor can i
but i can touch
you
can't i
i
don't
ever
want
to lose you

tag, you are it
