RosesYou love too much, I am told by a man with a briar heart, thorny sinews and collapsed ventricles bearing down on him, hardly beating in his tight chest. He looks at me with flat, slate eyes, chipping and eroding. His hands are dark with cigarette burns and rough with calluses; I feel them on my shoulders as he looks down at me, face collapsing in at his eyes like a dead man's.Roses3 years ago in Emotional More Like This
For the first time, I realize he is dead. His briar heart dried up when winter killed his rose; my father, he is all thorns.
He squeezes my shoulders, too tight. You look like your mother, you know, he whispers, eyes shifting to the garden, to the yellow rose I planted for her. It is a rambler, sending shoots to the sky that sink back down. We never gave it a trellis. I loved her too much. And there are tears in his eyes, wet, heavy things that slip down his cheeks and on to the grass below us.
I don't know what to say, so I think of the rose, of her. I think that I'd like to send this

Land of the FreeA factory worker and cashier give birth to a sonLand of the Free5 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Can't go to the hospital, paychecks are done
The mother dies as for the first time her son cries
Leaving the proletarian father to take care of this kid on his own
With only one income, they lose their home
As the father falls into depression following his late wife's death,
His boss decides he's not productive enough to earn his checks
Nothing to eat, nowhere to live
And no one's got charity to give
Is this what you call the "Land of the Free"?
A state built on nothing but greed
Where people are nothing but money-making tools
Slaving for heartless suit-clad ghouls
There is no freedom in this empty place
Let's band together and end the rat race!
The boy is growing up fast and shifting gears
Going to finish high school in a few years
Or he would, but the system never worked for everyone
He can't do math so it's a while before he's done
If he quits he won't be able to survive later in life
Found a girl he wants to make his wife
