"Cruel" A Cento by Charles Ray
You wanna know a secret?
I watch you fast asleep
more than you could ever know.
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.
