Connor created the topic: Poetry

There are kids smoking smarties
on the block where I grew up.

The expatriot neighbors of mine
judge them through cracked shudders

while I bathe in the blood of my
former lover whom I stabbed

because he was playing jazz too loud
in the bedroom.

As I genuflect to my achievement and
solidify my future as a rebel,

I am taken aback by the realization
that the world will continue to be

strange and bizarre despite the
double bar lines ending that annoying

trumpet line that screams in my ear.
Those kids will always find a way to

get off on some kind of love drunk,
leaving me to keep changing things so

at least I'm breathing for you.
Is there any chicken left?

Oh right.
You're dead.
