What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You What Now?

Enthralled by our disappointment,
the impoverished see with internal tears.
I miss the human truth of your smile,
saying “Go fuck yourselves, you motherfuckers!”

The impoverished see with internal tears
the muses at the doors of your body,
saying “Go fuck yourselves, you motherfuckers!”
Produce great persons, the rest follows.

The muses at the doors of your body
and the dead end in every face
produce great persons. The rest follows
out the window with the window.

And the dead end in every face
is an act of simple extension, reflex.
Out the window with the window.
We are the same people, only farther from home.

Is an act of simple extension, reflex
a house in our arms?
We are the same people, only farther from home
blossoming in the pale crystal library of tears.

A house in our arms
enthralled by our disappointment.
Blossoming in the pale crystal library of tears,
I miss the human truth of your smile.
