Get, Got, Gotten.


Let all the lies slide down
Onto a glass floor of the second story.
I'll paint it white and drill in tiny holes
So that maybe you can pretend
That it's just a popcorn ceiling.
I'll darken the lights until
these walls and barricades
Become figments of your imagination.
Whatever it takes is all it takes
To make you feel better.

Once I slip and fall
on your newly waxed floors
This illusion of ours will fade.
First you will hear the walls crumble,
Then you'll look up and see
The glass cracking above you.
Relax, it's just a popcorn ceiling.


The author's comments:
This is about doing or saying anything to make someone feel better. Like..."Are you sure I'm not bleeding?" "Oh no. You're fine, you're fine."

Of course he is serious! Our dear Boosflash is serious in his own way.

He rather likes your white wings.

The imagery and wryness of this poem is quite the savoring experience, Boo. Thankee for allowing us a glimpse into, maybe, what makes you flash.
