Down

Tell him he can’t

He’ll not listen

Hasn’t and won’t ever

 

Going off about something

Voicing that he has

Saying he will again

Trying to stop him

Running away

Racing towards Scotland

Finding it’s gone

Shaking it off

Sobbing till dawn

Regretting all

Turning away

Pushing down

Unseeing what was

 

Skipping into sound

Riding into questions

Laughing and insulting

Smiling at strings

Drawing up nonsense

Spitting in faces

Spinning in circles

Establishing position

Contradicting it

Standing in line

Jumping out

Believing the unbelievable

 

Staggering home

Puffing into air

Sucking in

Clouding cranium

Breathing or holding

Watching it slip

 

 

 

 

 

 

Staring into hazel eyes

Hazel into his

Looking without seeing

Glimpsing yet comprehending

Studying the rain

Glazing over

 

Growing new ones

Chapping lips

Meeting hair

Noticing extremes

Acknowledging inferiorities

Doing so while being in a complex as such

Suspecting self as God

Ruining reputation

Sensing change

Proclaiming one in himself

Presuming all approval

Receiving none

Disapproving love gifted from hazel

Raging red and green anger at what wasn’t and wouldn’t be

 

Leaving all behind

Backtracking into past

Remembering it

Thinking too hard

Asking elder for help

She remembers

 

In a kingdom of concrete

Amid light of night

A small fat man turns

Shuts off one light

Sits down to read

 

Falling

Yes, falling

Spraying

Screaming

Bursting

Whirring

Seething

Pulsing

Singing

Cursing

Clenching

Writhing

Writing

Yearning for Scotland

Reaching for hazel

Concealing

Purging

Giving

Apologizing

Forgiving

Revealing

Prompting others to do the same

They do

 

That man and fat man

Do not enjoy the other’s company

Fat man turns off ninth light

Ninth light is That man

 

Breathing

In

And

Out

In

And

Out

In

And

Out

Watching it slip

No

Or

Yes

Gone.
