"Ready To Lose"

Thinking about a mouth
that waters
thinking about losing
sucking the marrow feeding a pain
facing a consequence

The blood the mine the yours
combined
blood control a hazy line
rearranging
of desires

Ready
Ready to lose a privilege
Ready
Ready to lose a privilege

Dysfunctional culture spin me away
preserving a blood line
fear of suffering fear of loss
sucked in your
birthrights

The blood the mine the yours
combined
blood control a hazy line
rearranging
of desires

Ready
ready to lose a privilege
an ongoing habit
a transfer of possessions

ready
ready to lose a privilege
a final sequence
an end to succession
