everything was beautiful and nothing hurt

it's 4am

my bones popcrack
and a cd skip skip
s k i p s
on mercy
the world is a boy toting a banjo with a smirk
and i have to gather him in my words
and throw his ashes in the water
and i have to color this paper all night
or i'll bleed
grass seed
glass greed
they're breaking all my collarbones
and it's awfully hard to
let them out
the space between
my ribs
my words weigh burgundy
until i am a brick layer
chest pain cold rain blood stain
shower water on toes
.end scene.
