Some people say that those who take their own lives must live it over again to try and succeed at the next go-around. People are adorable. Let's have some fun, Dad.

Did you see?!

Did you see?!

They cheered!
They laughed,
they cried,
they fell in love.
They ran and bled.
They came.
They fought.
We conquered.
They envied us.

They fell in love,
then exiled us,
then crawled back
on their knees

Did you see?!

Did you see?!

We took the radio!
But not before
we took their churches,
their cafes,
their stages,
their picnics,
their barbecues,
their birthdays,
their Thanksgivings,
Christmases, New Years,
Weddings, and funerals.

We took their lovers,
sisters, brothers, mothers,
fathers, uncles, aunts, cousins.

We took their homes,
their food, their booze, their drugs.

We fell in love. They fell in love.

We worked and bled and died,
but now we've just begun to live.
We've read and learned.
We are as humble as slaves,
and as mighty as gods.

You are everything
the weak shun and fear,
and you burn inside of me
with a deadly heat
few can contain,
but they will know.
I will peel their lids,
and haunt their dreams.
Then I will pick their
broken pieces up,
put them back together.
They will proceed with strength,
or mortality.

The Slaves

Their fragments
are a pool to wash in.

Our fragments
we offer
that they can
wash in us,
they do not
cower in fear.

Many fear the unknown,
but you and I
tread many places--
enough to know . . .
to know . . .
that when They
stare at us,
We stare back.
