Random Poem:

graffiti on the bridge

mother never promised
what was impossible
to expect
no fairy tales or
midnight fears
just cookie cutters
and empty years.
its a lethargic memory,
scream costume
and priest molesters,
covered up by
lemonade stands
and tacky festivals
but that's the American
i hardly regret it.
