Hope you hold a knife on your body,
in a boot or
on a belt loop.
Flaunt life loudly the way you do and
people will shame you on this end
and grope you on the other. Slash it.
But be honest in your ripping. Do not
go down gripping onto
fear, lies, the awful anxieties the honest
despise. Enjoy the
jaunt, kiss haters hard, and turn a cheek
to those that don’t deserve. Better to
be better than bitter.
