Fuck Natives

 a poem by Joshua Brown

Relating to humans

Finding meaning in life

Thinking and thinking

But only finding strife

The child I brought

Into this world

And then another

In a world beyond

Alive but not to me

Dead but still breathing

Down my neck

Reminding me to drown

I didn't birth him

He was born of fire

Angry violent voices

All around stress

Why? he asks, Do you

Torture me so? Dread

The silent caresses

Of my own desire


I feed and clothe him

Or is it her? I know

Not. It is two children

Looking for connection.
