any wish can be a death wish if you’re crafty enough
new friends in the lifeboats first (!)
halftone semitone monochrome
her brevity evaded him / he haunted her
if incantation is illumination, then virtuoso you’re the driver
you’re ashamed / a locomotive of a phrase
& i know some sours suit your songs,
and i’m sure heaven has hotels,
but for the moment
your highways are filled with
no revenge on the upswing
blossom mess, a dancing explosive
confetti is glittering from the ceiling!
your room is antique-white
your windows, deceptive / cat-eyed
a man sins, far away—
which one of us shall pay for it?
a praise unwarranted
main goal is to gently shatter the virgin
a modern trick of mourning pleasure
a thousand beady eyes realign
and literature becomes apricots, warm sugar.
a casualness and a casual stroll can be great for this.
a breath is a cadence, a beach
in a movie theatre.
