Someone will have to explain why he was so marginalized.
Someone will have to explain why he is there.
who is this actor of a man
who bleeds on cue,
Who bleeds after waiting
on queue to do so ?
And he wonders as his insides turn to stone soup,
how long it might take to anesthetize himself to death.
The world, it seems, euthanized him long ago
and hasnt yet disposed of the body.
Aspirations to climb to the top resulted in
shouting from the rooftops
hoping to be heard by the nobody listening
in the empty town called home.
It is like all the quiet Sundays of his childhood.
He think he hears his mother sigh.
She’s only breathing.
She always breathes that hard
since he broke her heart.
He used to stare into the middle distance
toward tree tops,
for months until
she led him gently to bed.
So he goes knowing,
No one will ever explain anything at all.
It seems like it was all for nothing.
