For Lost Souls & Reputations
2 from Langston Hughes


Carried lonely up the aisle
In a box without a smile,
Resting near the altar where
Folks pass by and stare—

If I was alive
I’d say,
I don’t give a damn
Being this-a way!

But I would give a damn.


Gather quickly
Out of darkness
All the songs you know
And throw them at the sun
Before they melt
Like snow.
