They couldn’t take the
the exhausting sadness,

all day naps,
three week periods,
not even a fake smile and
always a goblet.
moonshine as promised.
overgrown gerbil:

dependent, sitting in her cedar-scented
piss in your lounge chair in the backyard,
picking pine needles out of my knots;
hollow but for some force fed
rum-coated water,
stale lines and organic vegan pop-tarts,
a shriveling income,
hooked in my dejection,
my lifeline,
my blooming red moon,
centuries of howls and hands like
doping me
and my braided tongue
trying to unwind
just licking up all the
you fed me:

but with love,
you said.
