Watermelon Seed Goodbyes

nothing to fear
the light
only stings
a little
like holy water
Sunday’s
doom and gloom
in your ears that
only goes so far
before one
loses interest
in the other
leaving not
a trace
they say forever
is to blame
for insects
broken apart
into sects
given in
to worry
about where
our energy
goes
remembering
the sentiments
of a child
saying goodbye
to the things
he loved
after swallowing
watermelon seeds
thinking he
would die
worrying
about going to
heaven or hell
because that’s
what he was told
so
goodbye twees
goodbye fwowers
goodbye moown
innocence
without pretense
thanks, grandpa
fucking liar
watermelon seeds
and religion
ruining the world
one child at a time
