the puzzle

the puzzle

for you & me

was how I felt

to be a gentle boy

puzzling as to how

others commented

created filled in spaces

make me seem dark

complex complicated even

when I was struggling

with the poets

they thought I was

fighting in the streets

robbing aged sisters

sucking up drugs & suds

savagery

thankfully the girls got it

denying the darkness

finding thoughtfulness

late night rhythms

with just enough bite

to piss of their parents
