Catbrother

Written by: Vincent Procopio

Do not slink in shame
But rejoice in unspoken secrecy

For the night
Belongs to you

Where you commune with
Spirits of your brethren

Who like you
May traverse the boundary

In life
As well as death

Your sad brothers
Tell forlorn tales

Of loss and pain
Brought on

By deathwagons
Of indifference

The crack-puncture
Of rival combat

And the searing needle
Of public policy

Paying homage
To none

Beloved Catbrother
