beef (an audio poem)

beef: an audio poem by Tremaine L. Loadholt

two different, but similar;
too different, but same
events just on one
side of town versus the other.

they raged through Cali;
past trauma bubbling over the
tops of their lives.
do they know what they’re

the burdens of our crosses
can be heavier than our
work schedules, mightier
than our time.

they couldn’t burp an
authentic apology–it isn’t
in them–no act of true
kindness lives in their bones.

but here they are,
connected by trials &
tribulations & last resorts
and borrowed time

that they will
never ever get back.
and they know it.
