there is something so

there is something so
unappealing
about riding
around in your
mercedes – the
sickly smell of
the leather interior,
the aimlessness of the
rides, and the sudden
shifts between
baiting, berating,
and boasting

remember that year

remember that year
when we lost so
many… was the
joy ever worth
the long
aches afterwards?
everyone tries
these words
in their mouths
many times before
spitting them out.
they’re unswallowable
by any muscles
so the human spirit
keeps taking the bait

the tongue you do not

the tongue you do not
choose to use loses
elasticity, fumbles
its phonetic alphabet,
but remains resilient,
bobbing across
brainwaves,
suspending
memories as bait

love agrees to meet

with proper bait, one

when i start using

when i start using
coincidence as bait,
the universe will soon
dangle off my fish
hook like a long lost
lover, looking for
the quickest way
home.

watch out for
me when i start
digging for
coincidences
like that –
be on to me
