glares of my eternity
nailing the splinters down

Names on Gray Rocks

Take me back to the dirt

no more dreams

no more thoughts

don't wanna feel myself

tryna' sneak in my coffin

see what I'll dig out

glares of my eternity

nailing the splinters down

tables under wood

a feast filled with grimy puddles

and stinging ants

I'm heavy-coated

heat flares dripping from the sun

running off like water

hump in my posture

on my way to that tall mound

names on gray rocks of granite

I'm here looking for mine

brought some apples for my exit

a present for the fruit flies

heart pounding and weak

feeling death like a cold wine

I'm itching to drink it

taking last breaths in this garden of Eden

good hair turned nappy

seeing my feet planted where I'll lay

sandals by the flowers

letters and proud notes

don't let this pain be your compass

never run to submit

ten toes polish the blackest of souls

to be born again

as a seed in the ground.
