tape to know there is puss oozing

from infested terrain somewhere

deep inside everybody

a separation that can’t be closed

a chasm most will try to cross

on some rickety footbridge of life

only to have it snap

Isn’t life the choreography of repetition of ten steps and a fall

of progress then failure

of glue-on-glued fracture?


and if you ever collapse and wail

from this sense of fracture

know that those stars you’re looking at

are much closer than you think
