Another level

1

I keep thinking
I’ll die

& then I don’t
Somehow

Watching loved
Ones go is hard
Even ones we
Don’t know

Purposeful
Representation
Of entirety of self

Purposeless
Orchids

Do not live

2

How many times
Did she tell you
What was happening?

& how many times
Did you tell me
I was wrong
About reality?

Some people
Thrive on
Others’ confusion

The ways of men
With no personalities

3

Cold eyes
Pretending
You were there
At the parking lot stairs


Leaving is one thing

But breaking everything
Before you go

Is another whole level

4

You found her
Didn’t you?

Your Cerissa
Your Karla

Serial forced reason
Is of no consequence

Immunity compromised

We have the revolution

Ultimately
