We were throw-away kids
flipped in the wind storm
swept up by carbon paper,
licked by lizards in restless hands
careless loved lies in dirty cameos
that ungloved heart filled no-nos

in the ward of the state
we disincarnated our chances to marry into
rich homes embraced with legalized sin
we picked up our brown bags
and became He-man and She-Ra in a new world
locked, twisted lips
on broken smiles, but we smile
bitterly ,
the best faith was from the shelter
when the jeans were rotated Monday-Wednesday
jogging pants in-between
we forgot this all

we are thrown into not knowing
on top of floating spirits inside the inner
hungry for the fire that once shot messages
when we returned-hell was un-buttoned
waiting to dig in our pockets
and spend our loss change

trying to claim our souls, are you

but we saw the promise land
the north star, on road maps
