"Cruel" A Cento by Charles Ray

You wanna know a secret?

I watch you fast asleep

more than you could ever know.

Listen close.

I did it out of love, baby.

All I gotta make is one call.

I'm still gonna do what he sent me to do,

and if there's nothing wrong

you and me will live forevermore.

*Cento is a form of poetry using lines from other poems, songs, or other published sources. A collage, an act of synthesis. Charles' cento is made from random songs on his phone.

Charles Ray (class of 2023) enjoys video games.
