That was me
(2020, Matthew Ryan Herget)
Black Sky filled my marrowed bones. I ran and screamed as Tyrannosaurus Rex beheaded my Great Grand Father. I am 1,260 hummingbird heart beats per minute. I am the silver tears of a mother holding what just grew in her stomach. I am every dead bee ever. I am sacred mushrooms preserved in honey. I built the Pyramids with ape hands sheathed in duct tape. I was the first man that let a wolf come to the campfire. I was the first man that ate that same wolf with tears in his eyes. I domesticated the Mustang and then made it carry all of my shit. I bit my tongue as Moloch feasted on my brothers and sisters. I was the one who shot that motherfucker in the chest. I was the one who lay on concrete, choking on stomach blood, dreaming of my parents. That was me. That was me. I talk with plants. They talk to me. We are We. We are We.
