freedom howl

I DIED FOR YOU TO BE A SPOON

the las vegas man

albuquerque cop

tells me

I could not be a spoon

not in other places

you’d be killed if you did that in other countries

the man forces me to accept his

he did this for me

can hear him plead,

demand

thank me

THANK YOU

but it’s a question

not yet a howl

you’d be killed if you did that in other countries

spoon wants to know,

did someone kill for me?

to be a spoon, what did it cost, did I cost it

the las vegas man

albuquerque cop

howls a lecture

I would be a no good spoon

my howls would not be heard

if not for

thank me thank me thank me

my ability to howl

made dependent on

the las vegas man

albuquerque cop

stares me down, and

I killed for your howls

dissenting howls, no good howls

not without a thank you first

blood on my hands for those howls

MY HOWLS ARE NOT BLOOD-STAINED

(silver spoon-skin shines its privilege)

SOME SPOONS HOWL HERE AND YOU DO NOT HEAR THEIR HOWLS

what did you do

were your howls your own

spoon wants to ask

spoon wants to ask if his

these freedom howls

he says

were they his

or were the howls

prescribed by someone else?

did he kill for my howls?

did he kill for your howls?

did he ask?

my howl-act taken from me

used against me

pointing backwards

away from me

I WANT TO SAY I HOWL FOR THOSE WHO CANNOT

I WANT TO SAY I HOWL AGAINST

but do they want me to howl for them

when I do not want this man to howl

his bloody oil-stained howls for me

he thinks as I do that his howls are his

his howls are freedom howls

he howled for me

SOMEONE EXPLAIN THIS TO ME, PLEASE

howl-act-howl-act-howl-act-spoon

some creatures even here do not howl as freely as I do

did this

las vegas man

albuquerque cop

who asks me,

don’t I think some cops,

don’t I think some

aren’t they

don’t they hurt too

and when I say yes and ask

but don’t they hurt too, though

he turns away, won’t answer

leaves me

I WANT TO TAKE MY ANSWER BACK

I DO NOT WANT TO THINK MY HOWLS ARE GOOD

I DO NOT WANT TO THINK MY HOWLS ARE BAD

I DO NOT WANT TO FEEL GOOD ABOUT MY

HOWL ACT HOWL ACT HOWL ACT SPOON

no such thing as a free howl

an unconstrained howl

an independent unmarred howl

here is my howl

an offer not a gift

and if you can hear it

you will explain it

and I will never know

howl-act-howl-act-howl-act-spoon

a howl cannot mean

a howl cannot be

a howl must be used

but who will use my howls

when I ask

someone explain this to me, please
