Because Praying Would Make You a Hypocrite

Praying at sunrise

Staring

into space as though,

in it,

you will see answers. 

Wishing

in the dark,

because praying would

make you a hypocrite. 

Asking

for help

is harder than needing help,

when you

don’t believe you deserve it. 

Remembering

that making it this far is

not a guarantee

for tomorrow.

Outlier

outlier-2

I’m a free agent now.

          You’ve always been one, kiddo.

          You’re an outlier.

          That’s lonelier than a minority group.

Then I am at liberty to say “fuck you” to the world.

          Always.

          That’s what poetry is.

And I’m going to have one hell of a next decade for poetry.

          I’m betting on it.

I grew up on a moon

orbiting

the planet Oklahoma.
