Can we take this little bone in my heart
and put it in a glass box
with some candles and some broken clocks
just to see a sea of faces stopping
in the dark dark.
If you find a friend in God
please ask them for direction
to the places they left those restless souls
jjjust to drown in their own damn’nation
under rooftops, in their back yards
behind the family sofa
while their Grand Ma’s banged against the walls
abandoned in St Rita’s.
I don’t really care what they say,
we heard it all before the breach.
They may think they Know What It Means…
to bet your soul…
and find your self
