Give In Or Die Trying

 

 

Bring your own flowers for the sole survivor,

a bottle of aged light for the failed rescue operation.

 

Burn roots and twigs to propitiate the fitful animals

that threaten to swallow all of your airtime.

 

This if a fence arises in the guise of a non-entity. 

 

The drawn line will be arbitrary and frayed where dazed

conversation sticks in its own feigned loop.

 

Who knows what these headaches indicate?

 

 I am too busy being torn through every window

 to mimic the sun-ignition of one dusty talisman.

 

I had some idea that dived frightened into a wound.

From there flowed numerous quaintly chic subjectivities. 

 

At dusk, to honor the shadow cast by wordless recognition,

I vow to cultivate the space of a missing person.
