I ask if you’ll buy me a magazine,
an issue of TIME published 3 months ago
get the figs while I clack my nails
on a dusty can of tomato.
is blasting the music you hate.
It feels early and late, with an orange sky
does time stretch like chewing gum here and bolt like lightning at home?
the cold marble floor with sandy bare feet
discreet when I slip in the sheets
karmouse under my breath
and dream of my death.
