so you know (note to an secret admirer)

listen
pay attention
close

my recent batch of friends
were killers pimps
and thieves

they took me through
the streets east
oakland

i fell generously
2 my knees

today i'm left
with memories
slow death

a poisoned self
defense

my eyes always
open
sensitivity post
acute

i'm twice as hot
inspired
as anyone
i know

simmerin'
slow
just under
boil

my eyes mix green
thread hazel
out of the
blue

the blue
is royal

if your
intentions
are like others

hid behind
some dusty
charm

listen
watch me fearlessly
you

fearlessly you
disarm
