Show Poem: August 2, 2017 KC, MO @ Records With Merritt w/ Moe A. Barria + When Particles Collide #poetry

Is full of deceit
You are my beautiful
True human
Tear filled eyes, shaking and
Screaming at the evolution

Tell me not to worship that.
Tell me to stop stabbing
Myself with television.
They give me thumbs when
I need water.

I grow antlers in your presence.
I grow and grow,
And that’s how I know.

TLC does critical policy advocacy and litigation on multiple fronts, fights for healthcare…
