"It's about words, and words are all I have…"

SAY

DO AS I SAY NOT AS I DO

I don’t know why I   punched

cancer girl   said my   12:45

A child so down & out that

there is some doubt   about

the presence of a conscience

 

I thanked her for her honesty

and encouraged her to think of

me   the next time she is angry

And like a snake charmer I gazed

into her dangerous   green eyes

 

I hoped that my conscience would

seep through the cracks of girlskin

Now like well worn leather from

proximity to Daddy’s sins
