My Brother - Poem by Juwon Daniel
Say something awful
as if fucking the world is your right;
as I watch you stumble
drunk out into the night.
To catcall ladies, you're thirsty for blood;
you're picking a fight,
as I wanted to ask you.
'Man, what do you do in the daylight? '
So bum me a cigarette,
Buy me a beer,
'Til I'm happy to be here,
Happy to be here,
With all of my family,
Hookers in heels;
and the men who watch them,
like hungry black eels,
Run into me Sunday
Tell me you had one hell of a time,
And through the haze and the gunsmoke
I'm forced to believe you're probably right,
And someone lies bleeding
Someone got violent and did not think twice,
And I watched you my brother,
Making a fool of the moon tonight.
