a summary of regret. poison perimeters. dwindling edges. skinless dolls flaunt their bones. sexy skeletons stumble through the broken choreography of trust. a series of brief wars that spill into a greater conflict.

she promised me when. at a time before she knew what it could mean. she gave me then. in exchange for the long needles and the small knots. a murky circus of transitions. she was the clock. for the pace of all gods in this marathon of discontent.

shuffling the years. wagers and bluffs. win and lose us. the narrowing plane. the shallow cutss. broker this wealth of skin. as if it is ours to spend.

a familiar hunger. an easy submission. an earnest fairy tale. that always ends in loss.
