march 19.

hope is a four letter word.

your fingerprints on my lens
I don't wipe it clean
a soft blur as I stare down

nectarine vapor cotton

the sun is setting on us again
behind the earth
the same sun you cursed all day

I consider a fall
jackknifing toward the ground
wet with clouds on my flesh

you are afraid to look up.


the tangerine sun
above blankets of vapor
my life diverted


a glint on the wing
frost frames the world through plastic
leaving you behind
