how to stay alive (alive)

4 Dec

instead of being ashamed you have

no damn money

you could try to extract your uncanny

opportunist

drink deeply

the luck

say fuck

money

if everyone ain’t got

(heart)

instead of making small talk

remember something funny you

wrote

about wanting to get into

falconry

tell them your dream of

befriending a bird

more intelligent than

yourself

say screw

(shame)

that

dark dank sinkhole

push forth from

that foul earth

call yourself royalty

perforate your skin

with hope

raise your

lungs to the light

sing

freedom
