halt

to reveal the intensity
of the day
cuts across the ideal of how you
can be so incredibly vain and not aware of
the last bit of suspicion as if a tree
abandoning its leaves is surprised once again
even though it is the same exact day as last year
you must at least realize the
groping that you do will be what causes your
inside the car voice to be left
behind as the hot face of the sun is how it feels
and your temper brought on the bite
of a snake in the bed at night
unless a bag of ice arrives before morning comes
it is time to move on but
don’t worry because I know
winter is coming and the ship’s sail
is full and the cold is going to be
a very long and a very hard one
to take…
