Innocent Replay Test

tempted by hot spirits
seduced by any number
of holey distractions
to pierce my sight whole
I insist on honing all corners cut
folding the edges back
on collapsing shelters

I got names
I got titles
with essential questions
making marks out of vapor

look past my beard grown grey
see through the rags that fall away
to expose my speeding skin
scripted in alien wrinkles

time ticks? time flees
time antes up my itches
just a notch worse every day

every flight is a failed escape
bracing for abrupt, final rise of land

Never Say Never Again


Forgot all that meant
anything to me

--forgot meaning

yet not managed
to forget me still
