Spaghetti knots

tap out

are we only we in the broken things

must we continue to bleed on those

who never wounded us

who do you talk to now that you are alone

like a scab

 

does the moon behind your chest still

hold a reflection in the knife

can butter still bend the metal

where are you now when

i am told there are people

dressed in long robes

against a longer road

still looking for the promised land

 

listen to how the ducks call your home their own

watch as the many miss the leaves that will fall over

their heads in a few year’s time

 

my shoes no longer fit

my feet have stayed the same size

in the smell

 

i am as i was

when i came to be i

though i hear dancing miles away

and the rice sours in the sink like my memory breathing morning

and i am done with the tired dirty words

that left you before you left me
