"I think people are scared to come out because they think we won't accept them",
say the voices who call pencils gay because the leads snap,
and faces look around the classroom for volunteers
as if I would dissect myself
and tell you about something I'm not even sure of yet,
that still haunts the back of my mind
and makes me second guess myself every time I look at Her
just to enrich our Citizenship lesson.

I think it's my damn business.
I think if you were really that accepting my skin wouldn't crawl when you talked about "dykes" with nervous scorn dripping from your teeth and labelled broken things the same as people.
I think "no".

I heard that he was insane
That his feelings were uncontrollable
I heard he committed suicide
It sounds so incredibly horrible
I heard he was seeing a shrink
I heard he thought he was fine
I heard he told him,
told him he could call anytime
but when he really needed him
He was declined.
I heard his father
he told him to be a man
He told him he couldn’t
and would never understand
I wonder has the guilt
swallowed him whole
I wonder will anything
fill his now empty soul
I heard his girlfriend she said goodbye
she was sick of the whines and all his cries
he said he didn’t need her
he needed no one
but in the end we all know he needed someone
I heard he did it with a gun
I wonder if it hurt
I heard he couldn't take it
All the pain and all the hurt
I heard he had a brother
a mother and a dad
I saw them at the funeral
they were bitter sweetly sad
I wonder does a tiger cry
when a brother loses his life
I wonder can you catch a tiger with a tear in its eye?

Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram,
Google Plus+, VK (Russian Facebook),
Flickr, MySpace, Meetup, ClassMates,
Minecraft, World of Warcraft, StarCraft,
Battlefield 2, The Sims 3 and Diablo III
have destroyed more minds and souls
than the death tolls
of WWI & WWII,
the Antioch earthquakes of 115 & 526,
the 1737 & 1839 India cyclones,
the Influenza Epidemic of 1918,
the 1931 China floods,
the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami,
and the number of Jews killed at
Auschwitz, Belzec and Majdanek
combined.

Social Media and Computer Games
are a total fucking waste of time ~
and a waste of time is a waste of life!

.

BTW, my mother actual was at Auschwitz and Majdanek.
You can read her triumphant memoir of survival at:

When he found me I told all his classmates that he had stolen my lunch money.

He was the best hide and seek
Player in the
Second grade
There were whispers
Rumors
He could beat the 5th and 6th
Graders
Nothing was ever lost to him
But time spent
And that was worth it

I hid and
When he found me I told all his classmates that he had stolen my lunch money.

I'm paying for the shit,
leave me alone
and let me sleep.

"You're not just here for yourself,
Mr. Willis,
you're here for your classmates,"
Mr. Fart said.

"I'm here to get a degree."

"Well, I'm sorry"

Yea, "Well",
now get your ass out my face
and let me sleep...

I respect teachers that want to teach; that love it; but there's a fundamental difference between a teacher and a professor; some can be both, most are either one or the other; any level of education.

like failed
bookshelves
or crushed
steps

the hill houses
of poorer
classmates

worry me like weather
and put in me
visions
of large
men
called away
to feed

at a trough
maintained

by a family
of flat chested
asthmatics
who sell
magnets

one can later
dot with glue
and give
to the mother
who has
everything

when we are young
we try to kiss our classmates
not knowing the consequence

i knew you were unhealthy for me
but i did it anyways

the only good thing you ever did
was cut me loose

i had a dream you took me back
i never wanted that

We're classmates

You're so close
But so far away
We're classmates
But you sit on the other side of the room.

Our heights are a close match
While our distance between each other is far
Our personalities don't match
And so is our love

I'm so in love with you
Oh you, the boy who is closely far.

at our classmates

metaphors are
rubber bands
we may extend them
as much as we like
we may shoot them
at our classmates
we may impress
our professors
with the shapes
we can contort
them into
but the more
we extend them
the more we
wear them out
and its very possible
that with all of our
stretching and extending
we could render
our metaphors
useless
snap
