You’ll see This life can change you Into something whole…Tuesday / December 2, 2014 #SchwervonPoetry

Crackle reckless cackle 
Blind spots 
Missed memories
Sunshine mama’s el sombrero 

Get the money

Paint on the floor
A cut out on the wall

You’re not looking at the best 
Just the lucky survivors 

Got one year 
One year of losing it

Matisse on the toilet 
Happy Grandma Beyoncé 

At a certain time 
Everyone on the train
Is ugly. 
At a certain time
Everyone on the train
Is beautiful. 

Cold bricks and widened sidewalks
The games of not there
Still there 
Lost hats and scarfs 

All the pain 
The finger that points
All of the tears 
The texting while driving
The cool not cool
My graffiti is prettier 
Than your graffiti 
The underwear vs. 
The outwer wear

It’s all worth it 
The light is worth it
The smiles 
The warm forehead 
The cold morning 
Sounds of early trash trucks 
Little farts under the covers 

I swear to fucking god 
It’s all worth it
Every second. 
Every asshole
Every smile
People just walk right past you 
It’s all beatiful and worth it 
I swear 
You’ll see 
This life can change you
Into something whole
You’ll see. 
You will.

(This poem was originally recited on December, 2 at Shea Stadium in iBrooklyn, New York)
