i think in fingerprints and teeth,
in skin and lips,
i'll try remember better, sir,
rubber wrists, a vial?
a concrete sore on the flesh of the earth,
eats away at the world til it's aching
all over - muscle turns to dust and
the clocks self-destruct, i bought a
fake bouquet -
i know the day the month the time,
but i don't want -
is there some medicine for this?
some blue and green, some bitter
taste? a stitch or two, some sleep, some
time to grieve, just something
cheap,
psychology and torture?
yes we do hang draw and quarter, pop your brain
down over there and i will see
what i can do, take two at night, come back
next week
-

about this fire
in my tongue, how much longer will
it last? these days i speak smoke
signals no one knows and how
it hurts,
i'm looking white, i'm
burning up -
go spend
some time down
in the ground and
write it out,
don't be a
mess
