November 27, 2009


my fingernails are ripping out

scratching along the wall

the weight of responsibility

drags me downward

the precipice looms


and you

so carefree up above

with your heels on my shoulder

have no clue that destruction

waits to claim its next victim



Notes on being father


My Fingernails are Ripping Out
