That Herrera Boy

I saw his smiling face on the
6 o’clock News, thinking he had gotten a Reward
or that he was the Result of a successful Amber Alert,
But his mother’s face only said one word:
“Goodbye.”

That Herrera Boy
came home,
took a belt,
and decided to play
a macabre game of Space Monkey
But he wasn’t playing

That Herrera Boy
barely had time to live
(In more ways than one)

That Herrera Boy went into his closet and never came out
Maybe that’s why his classmates ganged up on him:
he never came out of the closet like they thought he should
His poor mother had to pull him out

Goodbye little Herrera Boy
Tell your mother goodbye
Tell her…

It’s not that you’re hanging
It’s just that an Angel’s feet aren’t supposed to touch the ground.
