i write poetry when i can think of nothing to say
or can say nothing of what i think
it is a cop out
but it helps me send smoke signals to far off places
where people i do not know yet are waiting
for an answer
i am so broken
and so fucking fortunate
that it hurts to breathe

so take my words
and thoughts
away from me
hide them so i might not know
what i have said
in the times
when i should not speak

the boy who opened up
and showed amateur hour pain
during prime time
not legless
not mute
and not at all relevant

but a beggar just the same
is there a facebook app
for social lepers
who shed their thoughts?
