When mama arrested me

She did not say why

All she did was form

And force me to conform

With each spit

I thought she cleaned

With every mood swing

I thought she cleared

With every heartbeat, I felt some love

No rules for living

Resided in the jail,

Jail of urine

You should have promised much foul

You should have tipped the slime of life

You should have told of the cuffing of breath

My mama told me

Nothing of sort

No tip of hate

All there was was love

No tip of hardening

No tip of tears

What I dislike

Is the clause to not sue

Because of the arrest

Warranted by pleasure

And judged by breath
