“If you're losing your soul and you know it, then you've still got a soul left to lose”


They found him naked
walking down the highway
with his finger prints burned off
and coated black with ink
mouth sown shut
wallet melted into a puddle
with the cash half burned
and stuck to the ground
like a coin glued to the ground for the kids
A one man march
to a shallow grave
and the people drove over him
on there way to work
the birds ate the flesh
as if to say
they were waiting
and the birds
they mourned him when he was gone
when they were fed
when they were done
