skeleton of my house

take a step -
fingerprints frozen 'gainst windowpane.

and the fractures

fallen down -
sorrow floods gutters: silvery green.

ground teeth -
groan of furniture, bittersweet.

and the fractures

horror eating- the starkness swallows me.

up and up-
snapped dreams: blue bird wings.

and the fractures

gentle trace -
the split in the wall, good pain.

walk slow -
shrink back to old youth.

and the fractures

whisper low -
this home knows my name.

leave it -
close the door, close the jaw.

and wander away.
i'm moving. goodbye, old house :'(
