Alcoholic Poet. Poetry Equals Distance Over Time.

Distance Over Time

plain glass. the anatomy of grief. jagged and yellow in the frayed pockets of truth.

the hiss of how. steep bridges. arrogant despots. wearing their surrender in handshakes and kisses.

the kingdom. all matchbooks and cigarette butts. as if we can recall what humility is.
the wounds telling their stories.  lying sometimes. honest others. always confessing.

it pulls softly. a breath at the bottom of the ocean. though the drowning is obvious. the consequences are subtle.

it weighs too much. an elephant on a pendulum. time posturing at the edge of the cliff.

gravity undecided.
