Settle

it is a complicated life
we’d do best to slim down
settle

we nearly burn our feet
sticking them
so close
all crashed
pressed up
at the fire

at the windows
our names
scraped in the frost

my, what
mighty thumbs

faces we imagine
staring back
through the dark
that come
to bring harm
the memories
and there are scars
conditioned
a twine
wrapped around
cause a groove
so deep
ingrained makings
of disaster
should we
leave untended
that item
we know so well
but leave
unsaid
there are plans to
make
to pretend it’s
alright fine
dandelion pine
over

father figurine
frozen model
blank stare
why struggle
unshackling
the words in
mind?

we vanish
you look famished
we vanish from the scene

serene

look so neat in a box

so still, bleed
for the seconds that add up
but this crowd shuffles out

quite quiet quietly
all on diets
all deminished
all dime store trickle soda fountain
plantain chip drip

slip
crack
neck
spleen
rib

fizz

cloud
