A brother survives a brother's death in NYC.

lyrics

SURVIVED BY


Heart strap
thread of renewal
blood through a mucus membrane
stop—it don’t stop
thread through a needle’s eye
wet throng of need
don’t ever stop
need—the relative
pronoun implying possession

Demons
in the boom box
strung over shoulders
resenting rhythms
life’s train
can’t derail
dare not stop
taking ways
away.


9/14/1994
