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.
