Wake up. What’s your first thought? Am I able to move? Feel around, find some footing. Will I fall on the first step? It’s too far away to think about. I can’t get off the ground. You’ll see human suffering all around If you look. It’s not hard. Can they see you? Too many inherited experiences, shit we choose not to think about. It all takes place on our watch. It’s not that there aren’t any alternatives, we have the wealth. Think about your options and what steps will be traced back to you. There’s a pain in my head like a ten foot free fall head first on to concrete. My brain’s been saved though I still can’t stop these streaks that tear through my eye. There’s lightning and thunder inside. I’ve been walking about a minute now, gently rocking side to side. Everything takes forever, there’s no quick trip to the store. First stop is a sit down, I pretend that I smoke cause I don’t even have any cigarettes. And so I breathe in and tell myself, ‘Today is the day.’ Then I exhale and push it out all the way. How did I let you get away? There’s no love on the streets these days. Most of my friends have gone insane. And strangers look stranger everyday. They look at me, to them I’m free, and good for nothing.
