Hydroplane

Pressing the stretched
Surface of water
Skimming across
The overture

Hydroplane vision

Who you are
Who you were
Who you can be

Overage
Outage
Fear from
Fun & flatter

All the niceties
Erased by
All the deliberate
Misinterpretations

All that isn’t
Is the rise
& fall of
Wanting

Some of us
Were meant
To wait

& seldom told
We’re worth anything

Under the weight

The crash of
Deliberate death

You killed me
Over & over again

Welled

Concrète/visual version

Upping anticipation

For a moment

For a moment

Penalties
Games
Dangerous
Consequences

Wilting
Flower
Rises

Damages
Damages
Fashionable
Attire

Tropes & taupes
Interlopes

Tears fall like
Stars from your eyes

Like
Rain

In disguise

Did you get
Punished
Again
For
Being
Righteous?

You knew 
You’d never say
Until one day
Mauve clouds
Came out
To play

With your extropy

You gave away
The day
& you made it all make sense
With an
Interplay
Of shaky
Elevator
Liminalities

Trying

Is a fool’s errand

I am the fool

Underestimated

Lo-fi

I can’t
I just can’t
Sometimes

Or maybe

I can’t


A lot

I try to
Convince
Myself
Of this
& that

That I
Can
Overcome
Things
I cannot

I mean
I overcome
Most things

As we do

Yet some
Things
Linger

Danger

Danger is
Not a
Stranger

& yet
Each & every
Time
A
Stranger

It is

Tyro
Tyrociny
Some crafts
Are apprenticed
Rather slowy

& some
Skills are
Learned
At lightning
Speed

As if
There’s
A microchip
In your head

For the record
I don’t want a
Microchip in
My brain

For the record
I’m lo-fi
That way
