I want to come up with amendments, But my brains cannot function Because I have spent the last 8 hours Trying to memorize the 2 “I’s” of Lebanese history Irony and Ignorance.
I want to fix the world But I was never the handy man; I once broke my mother’s phone Trying to wipe the screen; And frankly, I don’t really know what’s wrong with it.
I want to patch my mother’s heart. The bullet in her son’s temple Burnt a hole in her arteries, So every time she inhales She could taste the lead Between her husband’s eyes; Because before the stars collapsed They were just scanning the shelves for skimmed milk; His daughter suffered from diabetes, And before the sun exploded At the bend of a thumb She was hanging from his arms, Jane trying to swing her way But in this movie She never meets Tarzan. His daughter was only 3. A car bomb Can conflagrate From 9,000 up to 27,000 feet per second Both are multiples of 3. A wired van Can carry up to 12,000 pounds Of explosives Also a multiple of 3. On her 3rd birthday She blew 3 candles, And 3 candles were lit- Every night, In between the white roses- Over her grave.
I want to breathe Burning tires, I want to bask In blood, I want to think In exchange rates, I want to feel numb; If this is the only way… Is this the only way To survive?
