big brother

       
heard my grizzly bear of a brother        
wail an anvil last nignt  
     
         
started as a simple spat with his ol' lady        
nothing to take the towers down on        
then she left to get space        
without a time frame on her returning        
          
she was back in a few hours        
as expected        
would not usually be an issue to alarm        
         
but there was an electrocuted second    
that strapped a lead noose
around the neck of his knowing
when she took their son        
who's a week off his first birthday        
         
there is no poetry where he felt this        
nothing my words wouldn't betray      
         
heard the hurt of the world rumble      
through a man who had an uncertain instant        
       
       
       
mine's due in two weeks      
with a woman that i don't speak to
