pen drop

drop the pen?

it depends on

abilities to read

poker faces playing the game

hard to read

but shorty’s twitch

is a recognizable itch

to make the innocent bleed

and leak 

like mother’s eyes
so I will 

I will drop

more words than 

kids drop empty shells

from gun pops

with potatoes

that silence gun’s pop

giving sides 

of fries 

with that body
erased black hearts
to heal black hearts

these words are chiseled 

stoney to the touch

touch ink

wet for fingerprinting 

shorty with the itch

the itch to mimic dad

amidst dad’s advice

hearsay 

never lived

I will write

and live 

and live to write

what dad meant to
