To No One: And Mary Did Time

Dear someone
out there who
may or may not
give a damn

‘I’m not a liar
I’m not a thief’

But you don’t give
a damn, don’t
wanna get close,
worried it might
rub off, typical
welfare come
social worker wanna
beeze’s

To whomever might
give me a passing
accidental glance,
to whomever might
have the guts to stop
and say hello

I didn’t mean to
kill my baby daught
I wasn’t right
I was sick

Dear anyone to anyone
who just might care
I didn’t know
I just didn’t know
I’m still not
sure
