“I am all the days
That you choose to ignore”

na ke yomali
ta utseuetle


Remembrance Day

Never forget.


A soft breath on your neck
I know that you are a wreck
A firm tug on your hair
I do this because I care
slowly caressing your skin
holding you down before I begin
I want to be your smile
hearing you groan, all the while
we will share our pain
your heart will strain


A single decision
made without precision

will change the day
in the most egregious way

make use of the voice
create the choice
