tired and sick in the head full of undesirable personas i envisaged i would use and excuse in some final act of morality

leadened sky—
i cleanse a village
of buttercups

not able to secure Valium numb fingertips a leaf of kitchen foil folded and slipped behind my smartphone battery

photon shower—
i imagine
an orgasm

fear into days into weeks into months into years over and above the years months weeks days i expected to fear

decree absolute—
a billion and one
snowflakes

crashing slate dip size the sun landed on Kick Hill west of the sea where brag clouds hide the December shipwreck

black ice—
there is nothing here
to see
