    I stayed long enough
    to feel the scalpel
    as you separated the epi-d
    and I saw your heart
    muscle-rough; same like me
    As you told what you think I be.
    I stayed long enough
    for you to tear apart
    the tattered threads that held my gran’mum dear.
    Her book on the shelf?
    Her song to my heart!
    lavender-must her incense raised!
    evaporated-milk-in-a-can, pre-latte
    bologna on white our awkward commune.
    Her prayers for the door-to-door
    who sold a keyboard
    danced over by her bony fingers
    tears and joy for the Savior I took too long to know.
    I stayed long enough
    for the insult wretched
    upon my uncle whose side-by-side mercy
    collected by a broken boy, fragments of manhood through his tortured adolescence and tender remnants of love
    but after the thieves violate
    he’s a broken, wrecked adult
    yet the secrete mercy repairs and lends to create the good man he becomes.
    I stayed long enough
    for the neighbor-hate you impute
    upon the jumper cable hero
    pos on pos; neg on neg
    to enliven my car my hope my heart
    with a smile and hug as he departs.
    I stayed long enough
    to breathe on my own
    without the arsenic of who you say we are.
