FOR ALL WHO PLAYED TAG AT SCHOOL

KNOT

From someone you know to someone you don’t know,

How far they travelled?

Did the noose on your neck kill you?

Or the stares you receive all the way to the short-drop spot?

Their hugs stink of betrayal and denial.

Hope, your memories get erased with your body.

Let lilies grow from your grave.

May they never forget you.
