Dignity

I am a homeless cliché

good grades

scholarships

heft in my profession.

And then, clip.

The cord broke.

No one knows how.

May you unclose your eyes.

A family procession

minus the marching band

saw me off at the airport when I left home.

I was honor and drive. So much more

than fallen strands of string.

May you realize that I know.

The whiff of my booze sweat hits the back of your throat

so hard

you smell topsoil.

Will you put down your phone

to what lies behind

the broken angry face,

the space person,

explorer of exponential nothing

with no memory of the memory

and no dream of the dream?

That’s right.

Put down your phone.

Refuse

to take a jackhammer to dignity.

May you

see me.
