Spaghetti knots

life

i have lived this humanity humiliating

with a good story of a bad story

where there is too much and still not enough

of that face i will give you when all the chips in the cupboards

have been eaten after only two days

or when you are going to leave me after a few happy years of

realizing that everyone is given the same time to live their life

even if the children do not realize that being born

is inappropriate

even if considering the probability

i am likely a bad person

trying to do something right

even if seeing birds weightless in the sky

traveling south for the winter

still gives me goosebumps

because i know that there are no more places to go to

no more back alleys anymore

all the roads are licked raw with the chipped mirror of a grown man

with ruined lips and no shave whose chest taps away like

ice picks collapsing away at a sculpture by an artist who has never

finished their work

an artist who tells that good story of a bad story

where there in the middle of its telling

is a woman like you

who will paint their apartment

taping the edges with green sincerity

moving all the preciousness into the center

who will look at the spot where i used to stand

lonely as the sun

and think that the floorboards could be changed too

 

no one ever means to stand as a rainy apology

to be so wrecked that to be alive is to be

a good story of a bad story

 

but this is it

 

every life i ever lived

where in one of them

spread like fingers of an astronaut to home

you are still reading this

and i am still writing words

that do not end

  2. Lots of good images and interesting lines here like “even if the children do not realize that being born / is inappropriate” and “all the roads are licked raw”.
