Crackers in Bed



You have taken all of my heroes
slaughtered them
as blighted cattle
and hung them out the window
to eradicate their smell

carved like a piece of my soul
malignant and rotting

but I love them
cherish them for the lessons
they have brought to me

those were my heroes
you cut away
and I chew on them
devour their essence

at night while you dream
