I CAN’T BREATHE EITHER

My Friend, I can’t breathe either

The scholar professionals
and smooth-talking humanitarians
lied and are weak
Sold us a false reality cheap
Mass produced in stores
Placed it next to the cashier teasing impulse
I don’t want to share my home with them
So tie my heart in rope and throw it in the sea
Let it sink in

                                                                     Deep

My toes will touch the ocean floor
I can’t see the surface

It’s cold

but I know a stream

will take me home.
