His, His


not in here,
there were excuses,
they were vast,
they were stupid,

but they were not in here—

and ugh—

It was a lot,

as that,

that was all—

Bound, Bounded

The third act wasn’t as swift,
not what we wanted it to be,

and the pages of the book were stuck together,
with sweat,
with crusty,
yellow puddles,

and I had lost the ability to remember how that happened,

so I just said it would be good,
that we would figure it out,
because I knew we would—

Anoint, Nonsense

They said one day he would be King,
and he was,
to some,
to lots,

but he was also a thief,
a great American thief,

never known for being the escape artist he was,
and then long gone,
when he looked nothing like The throned,
nothing like that again—

One Point Five

The books weren’t the same,
and because of that,
I had to look again,
and say more,
then less—

but they weren’t,
they were longer,
and said less,

than ever before,

and I just wondered whether any of this was the tonic I sold it to be,
it wasn’t even purple—

Up Right, Right?

The wall,

up against it,
breathing it in,
it’s cold on my cheek,
before they weaponized—


before any of that—

I can't think of a better way to say this,
than to not say it,
but imply that you were the worst person,
the worst person that I had ever,
ever met,

and somebody went south,
because we never bothered to put words and thoughts together,

we never bothered,

Blink, So

That's as much as I'm willing to say,

even the constellation,
even that,
in its free form,
outlined for you the future,

not today,
not now,


So, So, So—

No one changed any of this,
and the little micro changes you made,
they didn’t change anything,
anything at all—

you knew it—
so did I,

but we liked to believe our changes
we’re the arrows of big, glacier sized changes,
and they weren’t,

because no one was that interesting—

One eye open

seemed the reyet approach,
and I knew I would read this wrong one day,
in descending order,

I just didn’t fucking care—
