my brother looked me dead in the face
said, "it's a god damned shame
what you became; the animal that you are
these days."

christopher,
i'm afraid that i became
what i was meant to be
all along

my mother looked me square in the eye
said, "son you will die
the way your father died;
drunk, alone, nobody by your side."

i said,
"i'm half-way there,
i just ain't dead yet."



mary, are you as happy as you say you are?
