one for lisa, stoned

try to help and you
fuck things up even more and
so you stop trying to help

this is the way

these are the starving orphans
of the world and the
battered mothers and the
abused babies

within wheels

gears clotted with
rust and with blood

this woman next to you
in bed who says show me how
much you love me
over and
over but all you do is
hurt each other

all you do is hurt

there is no shame
in turning away
