flicker

tumble toes, tingling
fingers and mumble woes.
listing what lingers
and rumbles the undertow.

maddening tinkers and
bumblebee undertones.

half a bombastic and trapeze
apartment for you to assume
is a place made for you. it’s
a home, a fantastic, a dream
you thought true; a disease
colored deep in your favorite

blue.

tumble toes, tingling
fingers and mumble woes.
listing what lingers
and rumbles the undertow.

fit for a ringer and dressed
to the upper bones.

craving creation and wishing
to be alone. billed to a grifter
that’s raving about how
erasure is missing the last
half an invoice and waiting
to pay with a fifth of a

drifter.

tumble toes, tingling
fingers and mumble woes.
listing what lingers
and rumbles the undertow.

stumbling into a crowd
throwing colored stones.
