Here It Comes

When all else fails,
Leap from the world in a haze of who-knows-where.
It’s nothing but a fall from grace,
A love of failure.
Everything’s waiting for you just beyond perfection,
Just above the prettiest sky I made for you.

Elementary waves buck under me,
Feeling up my legs,
Crawling up my waist,
Climbing up my spinal fluid.
Don’t stop.
Resting around my throat like a brace against fortune,
He-She-It-They held a third person party down the
Road someday.

Hold my center,
My neck tighter.
Found you.

Spiked all over,
All over,
It’s all over.

Fill in the blanks between,
Leave it cool,
Leave it safe.
Never ever.

Tentative face plant on the hard dirt.
Skin sobs to be touched.
Why does everything have to be so abstract?
Pale in your own comparison, baby. Do it or else.
Take it.
