A Purpose

from by Kiran Leonard



i remember her docking,
or at least what she told me.
the mystery of origin.
a bustling city,
bridges and shipyards,
and infidel lovers

and my father was
a railway worker
carved from the mountain
and cross-country bike rides
to see my aunt mary
no blood relation

and all alone
drinking pop in the sitting room

now that i'm older
what will i believe in?
a futureless nightmare
and i have a doctor,
but he doesn't know me.
i saw youths take substance,
smashing our shelters
a lost generation

and how will they atone
for the bodies that they left alone?

i used to hear my records
only through premium speakers.
i'd walk around upright
with a purpose
