(It’s) Me not just anyone
I try
to be real
in a world where-

The existential bleak of suburban wastelands
Float on the bubble of
Can barely afford
Until pop, and we’re left with-

Ball bounces on pavement,
Child gone.

Winds howl across deserts.
A shadow sweeps by. Vultures hunt.
Piercing sunlight winks.

Trying to be real,
In a world where
That’s not how we do things
