Letter to the Ex

From behind the dust
Into the skies
My brothers
They sang lullabies

Exposing the dark-
ness of our lust
That made us laugh
And made her cry

The cry of
Varicose veins
Tongues twisted
Unopened eyes

All we ever wanted
Was to claim the
Land as ours

All she ever needed
Was a generation to
Carry her along

But we as she are
Behind the dust
Under the greying
Empty sky
