Twenty Years

from Rakes by Tommy Santee Klaws



Long nails and calloused feet. My mouth and nose are things that bleed. My ears and eyes are full of smoke. The dirt, the hair, and the mold. Twenty years or more ago the fire broke and ate us whole. Thirty pills ago she found the drugs in the bottom drawer. Twenty scabs and sores I don't think they were there before. Skin tags and more were bored and grew on my torso. Twenty years or more ago the fire broke and saved us all. Cover me in your love.
