Up in Smoke, April 2013


got a tooth ache
cause a fake one
says change me soon
I use my hands
maybe I don’t know
how to bite anymore
what does it mean
I haven’t made love
in a long time
on the opposite
I got a pointed pain
in my elbow
it puzzles me
I may have hit
your bony body
cause it has a bruise
and a tiny red scar
a hat on the ache
or maybe it was
when I held you as
you fell asleep
my arm did but not
me I kept on listening
then found myself
in a prayer
