ROGUE STATE

It is in the mind

to be born in a rogue

like you, Mom,

who doesn’t need to be said for

and only knows

the difference between the loves

of life

and the songs of dead men

who don’t mean a thing

anymore.

I will be good

but you better

understand that all

they do is ask

for the ring on your finger

back and that

is bad for the righteous

time we are having

together.
