waltzing
inching across the rain-soaked roads
palming the ground
in beat with the lazy snaps and thuds
side stick - one - two - dum
eyes drawn close and unstaring.

i have a fever
that taps politely every so often
against my optical nerves.

i see you now.
like i didn't before.
fracturing like a precious china doll.
please gather the shards.

Screaming in a futile attempt to slow down time
Wasp-in-a-jar.

Ha ha ha. Laugh at me. Open your mouth wide
bare your teeth
Squiggling, disgusting, bobbing tonsil
I will cut it off.

i see you now.
like i didn't before.
fracturing like a precious china doll.
please tape the pieces together.

Oh baby, you're such a drag.
Drum roll, please
In swelling volume
To echo our footsteps
As they drag across the marble floor
Polished hastily.

there are things that drift away
quietly, without notice
whether you want them to or not
where do you find the energy
for these empty afternoons?
for warm-less nights and tussled blankets?

somewhere across the horizon
i see you.
