Slippery

Have you ever
been somewhere

And just thought,

“Oh my god,
I am actually
Losing my mind.

This is what
Releasing
The grip
On sanity

Feels like.”

I just did,

Watching two
[Insanely
Too] attractive
People

be In love
| All over |
Each other.

She took
Her hair
Out of
A bun And

locked tresses
Fell perfectly.

I Keep Forgetting

I left
the teapot
on

not hearing
it whistle

long enough
to burn it
again.

by the time
i remembered

i had to
pry its
hot metal
bottom

from sautered
spiral prison.

hope it
will
forgive me

[salvage
charless tasting
oatmeal water]

For forgetting
about it

while it
killed itself
on burner.

lying
in bed

i hear it
whistling
placebo;

[we could
have ruined
it this time]

A guilt
calloused
melody
of sorrow.

Luke Warm
Was a
Luke man

Some might
Even call him
A warm man

Regardless,

Now 
he is a
–Dead man.

Luke Warm
leaves
Lace doilies
In the
Middle
Of the
Show floor

Persistently

To say
“Hi”
To employees

Customers
Feel him

Once
At close

He set off
An alarm clock
Despite it’s
Electrical
Disconnection

A friend
Of a friend
Who works there
Told me
She felt
A Cold presence

But,

I’m willing
to bet

She
-really-
felt

Luke Warm.

The complicated train
has many tracks,

and those tracks
aren’t even
relevant or necessary
to be fully blueprinted

the plans
have been
cancelled
to build them.

I was a
half baked lovehobo
Coaxing you
to jump
on it’s boxcar
with me
for a month
or so.

I know,
“Bridges are best crossed
when you need to get
to what’s on the other side,
and not before.”

“Don’t live under them,
silly girl,

you will make yourself sick
–dwelling under them
like that
–as if they were built
to keep you safe.

Don’t you know?

Not
every structure
which keeps
the rain
from coming
down
on your head
–will stop
the cold from
Knawing
at your bones?

Don’t let yourself
freeze over me;

a statue
in reminiscence.”
