don't let it linger

to bear witness to that
middle finger 
you let it linger
in the air 
your middle finger
girl, try not to care
about him 
and his displaced hate
-eyes ablaze-
with words unspoken
with un-understanding
girl, upon his crash landing
he landed on earth 
not an earth 
you understand: 
to bear witness to
that middle finger
don't let it linger
lay down your weapons
and look instead to the sky 
to the changing clouds: clouds don't lie
your un-understanding 
your crash landing
up in flames
don't ask how
just let go 
boy, stop trying to blow 
things up 
things you don't understand 
just carry on living 
life the best way 
you can
