the air is melting

forest light on your skin
clatters
what does a sinkhole
smell like
we are sinking
floating fishes
mold and permutations
i’ve always been afraid
of the umber in your eyes
you are singing
a song
you were always singing
a song
voice of a dog’s
bite
the above world
doesn’t know we are
missing
you wouldn’t
kiss me
blame it on
the daisies
when you touched
me i became a
patient
waking up
during surgery
i tried to call out
but my own song
wouldn’t come
