Don’t look at me that way,
I’m not here for anyone to feel sorry for,
Salmon spent their lives swimming home,
That’s right lay their eggs and die,
A young lesbian in Florida just told me she was sorry I was on disability,
Evidently she has never seen the stats,
Most people struck by a car on a horse or a ten speed don’t survive to the hospital,
I shake,had a shitty MD,
No test run and that night August eleventh after a final in Cultural Diversity with a smashed set wrist and a left knee a car tried to drive through still made supper for mom and day August 11th,2008.
I was fifty.
Took seven year before I found out I had a TBI and two small strokes,
Not my fault,
No employer employee disability on a cane with Honorable Discharges US Army who survived twice in sixty-three years being struck with a car,
Died twice in two fourteen at my half sisters hands with burnt lungs,
I limp but I get there,
