Mother, I got cold hands and don't know where to put them. I got blue in my blood and don't know where it came from. I misplaced her blue dress and the last time I slept. She drowned herself in honey. Oh, God, I wish I'd been there. We're useless and we bleed from hearts that'd rather not beat. I recall silhouettes from the window where the sun hit. I am laughing sickness of mother's bleeding blood breasts. Setting fires to seas just to see who'd fail me. Learned from nightmares and dreams what Sunday School should've taught me. I was twelve years old when mother lesson-learned me.
