Ryan Downum

questions for a new age of honesty

 

who are we but
spilt camel’s back?
who are we but
the dying breed
of cocaine sniffers
watching the night
or knight steady
his sword onto
the throat of morning’s
tusks? for shame
two-fold this ten dollar
bill and drugs
are a good thing
to harness the picture
of a brand new x-ray
to be in love
is the moon
pondering its existence
troubled hands
on this whiskey
river boat
