about

“Human”

Two Stories and
Twenty Five feet.
I measured the distance
from my window to street
and wondered quite often
how it would look
to commit such a feat
with my head as a weight to bring me
straight down
bring me straight down.

Heavy with thoughts
I’m heavy with one
“Will I die all alone,
in a bed very sick,
or cover this sidewalk
red and slick?”

I told everyone I was fine
for 365 days
and on the last night
of the year
I told Joe why I wasn’t.
Three A.M. and barely
able to talk
I explained it to him
all I could
right before he left.

Heavy with thoughts,
I’m heavy with one.
“Will I die all alone,
in a bed very sick,
or cover this sidewalk
red and slick?”

Well everyone’s always
saying
“just cheer up, just cheer up.”
Well where were you when
I needed some help?
Well you’re too busy with your
own life
to give a shit.
It’s okay, man, I understand.
Well you’re too busy with your
own life
to give a shit.
It’s okay, man, I understand.

Red and slick
