speeding boys

new shit 2.0

Doesn’t matter what
you’ll stab anyone in the gut
you’ll stab your friends in the backs
just to get your red stash
take the cash, don’t look back
don’t look away, like a car accident
two teenage boys speeding down the highway
testosterone’s all the rage, and literature is just another snack for the fire’s hungry light.

Doesn’t matter what
we’ll stab anyone in the back
we’ve all lost all our friends
to the games we play, when we talk about souls
we cast out our lines, take out our guns
spread the honey, and don’t expect to come back home again
empty handed.

All’s the rage, war, love, peace, drug’s the game
land in the sand, strike a match
with all the kids in the land, jump off a bridge
watch first the water coming to meet the eager hands
watch the sunset cast gold over your eyes
dig your hands deep into my treasure
take it all, I don’t mind.

I think I’ll leave town for a while
drive around, think about wasting time
I think I’ll take a long drive, turn off my brain
let my heart take the wheel, lose all my friends
in the deal, that’s life.

This is how we shake hands, this is how we say goodbye.

this is a poem for a really long story I’m writing,
where a lot of the main character’s main thoughts/actions could be written in poetry…
so ENJOY> lukewater.
