i create a man of my dreams

April 26, 2020



man of wombs and wounds; 
you carry three generations and 
a satchel of boyhood dreams 
on shoulders fashioned 
from yew and steel. there is a wake 
of magnanimous ennui in those 
wiry clavicles, lamentable, 
mischievous bones. you said you 
liked to shed your skin at midnight, 
you, automobile child, 
pastor of yellow streetlights, 
apologies whispered between 
unrelenting legs. all the world 
and his sardonic musing cannot 
save your indolent misery; follies 
crafted fastidiously, the bitter-saccharine 
irony in setting your pain on fire, 
and blooming it in 
somebody else.


idk wot this is :)
