Liquefied

Liquefied (1/8)

I'm a hack - I've never been in love - never been to the ocean
seen a city walk out and shit a storm of jellyfish

I have walked a cliff - seen sunken ships in turquoise water

My love is a broken bee-hive - abandoned - contents cooling
a deserted town with every light on

There are faces at my windows - they are mannequins

Dawn is a cooling time - a place of breath misting - dew on feet
the wet toes of my sneakers leave little circles in the field

I wish I could see the sun as an omen for rebirth but -

it only begets night
