Chinatown Youth Center (Fresno, Ca.)
—As Cool As An Attempted Suicide
I will burn this shell away
so I can’t think of these days.
Everyone is going away.
It’s always been the same.
There are a million reenactments pounding in my head
as each one ends another part of me sheds.
I just want to rest my head.
I want out but a method will never appear.
I want out.
Can you help me find a way out of here?
I have to step forward but I can’t look back.
Can you help me step forward?
Don’t look back.
Don’t ever look back.
I am the skinless son.
I am your skinless son.
My head is going to explode. Some seriously loud shit. I expected no less.
