Buddy


Buddy has a hand gun & hasn't slept for 3 days,
he has mood swings you know,
his Father stopped abusing him when he reached puberty
he has school tomorrow

He has a part-time job,
he has experienced unrequited love,
he keeps a stilletto blade in his sock
he is bored of your sympathy

It could go either way, do you care
he won't thank you anyway
don't get involved, he's a statistic
a body bag will carry your hopes & best wishes

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
