Untitled I—Kevlar

If I could, I’d give you eyes in the back of your heads To watch your backs And protect your skulls When bullets are aimed at them Because you look just like the midnight sky

If I could, I’d wrap you in Kevlar And send you out into the world To breathe all your breaths Speak all your words And take every step your foot wishes

If I could, I’d dress you in roses And daisies Daffodils and sunflowers Roses resting atop your living body Before ever tossed on your descending caskeT
