For Thabiso

today was a bad day

i cried and cut

and skipped Cilift


today was dark and long

i want to say i understand

and pretend it’s okay


today was another bad day

i want to tell you how mine was

and hope it makes yours better


today was heavy

with the smell of death

and in those last five minutes

we were too late

We’ve always been
