these days,
you’re in such
a haze. Mind’s
escaping, these
wounds, left
gaping. You
titter and
stare, while
stripes I bear.

Words whipped
wildly, shouted-
without care.
Leave scars
behind, yet
you, are
blind. Can’t
you see,
you’re
killing
me?

Hip Shots

Slapping canvas,
words
meet paper,
carelessly
thrown-
skipping a
stone,
writing
meaningless
groans.

Not
a jot, or
a thought,
to what
they might
mean,
perhaps even
glean, something
hidden
beneath-
this
razorback
sheath.

Your
new
car,
suits
you.
wear
it
well,
hydro
formed,
slick,
fast-n-easy-
pin
striped-
leather
seats
matching,
hearth
and
home.

While playing,
I learn,
more
about, the rules.
I wait,
I call you,
you text me,
volleying.
It’s a game,
a small,
minded game.
I no longer wish,
to play-
with
you.
