Poet Teardrops

from Punk Heart by Short Hand



Hey poet. Lovebird.
You got a life, word bird?

What do you think, at night,
Knowing the road you travel?
You don't advocate violence, or anything, do you?
You got a patron, poet?
Like I've got my wife?

Do you wake up tired
Unable to lay down?
Are you like a jump roper jumping rope? (Jump!)
Is there a fire somewhere?
Any room for jokes? Any room for skipping jokes?

You know it.
You don't have to be told about it.
Do you understand time on a clock?
Are you, or are you not, on a map, a dot?
Teardrops! Teardrops! Poet teardrops!
