Motherless Child

Last night, after the crickets stopped chirping, I set my face alight. The agony was searing. It made me hard. My screams woke the neighbors. They turned on the big flood lights, which confused a bird. Thinking that it was dawn the little feathered fuck started to sing. Sometimes I sit alone and I can hear Richie Havens singing about being a motherless child.
