same time, every night


yes, a vessel or a vehicle

however you want to put it, treacle

consider this,

if the pressure only builds to break

then why build it the first place?

the dizziness is morning wine

carelessly spilled on a copy of time

knit one, pearl one, check your phone

do you go to bed in your clothes

or go home alone?

getting the lived in look?

two pigsty eyes

and your father’s cheekbones

survive the night

but is tepid tea and a housemate score

sufficient reward for all I have taught?
