Random Poem:

it was a trainwreck

i remember thanksgiving falling on a family's funeral-eyes
it's impossible to be a lone in a filled apartment
5 people per key on a computer keyboard
alaphabet letters chewed up, digested, and forgotten
as fast as the food piling up in our mouths to avoid any conversation
because we all know any word uttered which coincides all the words and jokes he spoke might unearth more bloodshot funeral-eyes
the first thanksgiving with false laughter at nervous jokes
i just want you to come back home
i held a dove bloodied-up for the first time...
