Her appearance, her appeal,
hanging here in front of me
in silver bells, at the bottom
of my washed out wishing well.
String taut, reflecting the weight
of her decision at the hands of gravity.
To say her countenance is frigid
would be an understatement.
To say my countenance is
wading through the shallows
wouldn't be a statement at all.
"I swear I've only ever lied
through false teeth" I say,
As she fills my pockets with memories
that she doesn't want to be seen with,
but that I just can't throw away.
If things keep going in this direction
I'll wish this well to be my grave.
I'll find that I can be happy here,
because I'm just miserable
when everything is real.



Conor L. Williams Jr.

He was in too many ways;
(wanted).
in too many states,
(flaunting);
the claims that made them ask his age.
"I'll be okay," he'd say,
in his grandma's back seat
holding his wrist with a bandage.

(Sold it);
that old tent where he stuffed the knifes
under a bed-sheet
(Contorted);
like the break of a bone
cause he couldn't dial the correct number
on the rotary phone.

And that's where he left the body
with a shiver to greet the cold
there are no worms that want to take it
their arms are lying adjacent
it's in the news
it's in the news.

About then he stopped counting the days
(instituted);
with all the sinners
you would ever want to meet
(eluded);
all the proper evaluations and conversations,
to inject another grain of salt into the wound
which everyone thought was his.

And there he managed to crack a smile.
Worth the while to stand in single file.
And there he managed to crack a smile.

That's where he left the bodies
with a shiver to greet the cold
there are no worms that want to take it
their arms are lying adjacent

It's in the news
(he cracked a smile)
it's in the news
(standing in single file)
it's in the news.

I wasn't really blown away by either one to be honest :/ But I enjoyed blue a lot more, it was to the point and straightforward.
Drop another coin in the slot, and I will tell you more...
