We are in love with you. Meet our dads



I cuss and cry uncle, with keys between knuckles
The dark is just sex and sounds of smashed bottles
I got my beliefs ground up by black teeth
I've got my surplus of nothing I need

I can cope

A pamphlet on how to side step the problem
The bubble wrap life of a glorified shadow
I got my stain glass consigned to the past
I've got my good days to blow dry the bad

Can I cope?
