Everett Bradley, convincingly or not, doesn't do much else other than write and read.

I didn't care to stop him

when he was changing his name.

I didn't care to fight him

when he began clawing for my duck's lame attention.

My lame wing.


Steal my ears twice

and control my brain thrice,

I'd bargain to save Cain if meant preventing your long arms to take me in.


At what point this began to flower,

to take shape,

I can't remember.

I can't even decipher it for you

Words wont do it justice.


Not mine,

in any case.


I want you to silence yourself.
I want you to cry.
I want you to shake this frustration
out of my neck

Squeeze it tightly,
maintain a firm grip.
and hold your responsibility until it's lifeless
Hold me like your lover.
Hold me like I'm your lover.
Stop letting go and hold me
