and i am a hammer Apr 4, 2018

little girls die every day
stronger than you
with more conviction and singular purpose
who saw the world with clearer eyes

at all times just
one sixty mile an hour collision away
the physics of death
and yet you know so much

when the wars start and the traffic flows
where there's smoke there's money
but there is no conspiracy
it's all just bread on the table

you think i can't see what you want
when you show up at one in the morning
or you pick a fight about the dishes
when i ask about your job search

this world is glass

and i am a hammer
