a careless cause is implicated
when the mirror absorbs any meaning
and spits back a tired ghost
any solid can float through air
but air rises higher than any complex machine
the king had lost his throne
and calls the lonely ghost of him to come home
don't you think I'd mention your majesty?
when I was once your cup of tea
a tree held beauty next to his broken cousin
the wave caps in the ocean triple by a dozen
the fog disguises any horizon we may see
I watch intently and let you tumble loosely from me
a ring, a tiny hand, any gentle feeling
falls from our hideout into the sea
along with any hope you promised not to promise me
twisting and turning without oxygen forever
muddy knees, fleshy heart
what once sewn me together, detaches and sews me right apart
