Knows that it’s not better

 

off without you,

 

waiting on    high,

 

murmuring   the         King’s

 

english,

 

    stalking the low

                                    road,

 

tongues your e ar

 

with one   page              novella’s t hat

 

resolve while waiting for the “Walk”

 

sign to turn gre e n

 

                            pul  l l ing you to the

 

     fa  r side,

                                        punct       uated

                                        inhale  d

                                        s   norted,

                                        swa llowed

                                        in  je  cted

 

with  f  in  e    slea  zy   flow.

               .

                        It’s all cheese cl  oth           ai r,   

 

Suffo  ca t  ing   bub bles,

 

                   nea  rl y  fa  

inting,

 

                                     th   en,

 you’re ther  e,

caulk  ing nonsense

 

bees sto        wing

pol   len dron  es

 

in the sl  ack of your head.

 

Where arti   culat    ion

 

has found a place to

hide.
