I am a dissolute and undisciplined creature misc/poetry

At home, I tell my vegetarian friends

i tell you that you will die misc/poetry

You want more police, you said, more patrols,
all of the Aurora crap pushed away,
to some other neighborhood, some other
place, someone else's

we would all have to give misc/poetry

I was a worker once.
Lent my labor to
the appetites of mass.
