Lekë Loshi

Rookie (5/13/93 / Prishtina, Kosovo)

Hemp


The coroner passed me the shovel
In the dark draped mirrors
The trees were raped by the winds
Tangle and dwindle my already shaken mind
Swaying on a burning ship
Scuttling, ready to submerge in a green sea.

Tainted glimpses blotched with enigma
I’ve become a part of everything
That was all I gave
To a coroner that dug my grave


I am under the earth
Yet I see myself in the skies
The stars blink bright orange
Spreading their lies
Like gossip from an avaricious mouth

I thought it was over
Just to be surrounded by a black swarm of roaches
They bite, slither under your skin
The feelings of being and sensation
