    I offer you my love

    After Jimmy Santiago Baca

    Remember it is cold

    it is dog eat god

    solidarity is scorned

    life is lived for money

    some would eat their young

    sell their souls

    it’s every man for himself

    the offering, remember
    is inside (Report) Reply
