Pain relief

Builders will continue to build, and
White folk dumpster dive,

In the winter anyway,

In red,
And blue overalls, scavenge –

Some for profit, others fun, and I

Cannot be a predator, I
Cannot carry luggage, I

Am dying, and

Perhaps giving things away, a
book or something will relive the pain, lord

Knows I just need some pain relief and, I
Just cannot afford to hoard right now, nor pilgrimage, how

I wish I had done this earlier like,
Forgiven my lover, myself –

I’ll do it in dungarees, I am dying and I

Will give away yellow popsicles instead.
