An End, Once and For AllIThis is me listening for a ghostwith wildfire-wide eyes on a Tuesday at two a.m.spiking eagerness with anxious osmosis;I petition for an identity from a circuit court.IIThis is me listening for the ghost of Ariana Nicole David,who existed solely in the womb and pride of my mother.Mom says, with renewed vigorous rigor mortis,she wanted Ariana enough for her to existwithout ultrasound proof.Nicholas Aaron Swaner was born on April 17th, 1993without a father's signature or surname;Nicholas was born with a father's doubt.There is a letter to write to Nicholas' fatherand his father still hasn't written it yet.There is someone listening for the ghost of Nicholas Aaron Swanerbut only tasting spirits.IIII'm not an addict, but I got a habitof writing shit down when I believe itso I've started signing papers different.I won't write off my identity with a name.
