We wait and wait

March 21, 2016 - romanticpathofselfdestruction -

A poem about deterioration and the beauty of saturation. A poem about domestic creatures.

one box two boxes
it doesn’t matter
some countries don’t have corners
edges
some animals don’t have back legs
mobility
I can come to you
for the small price of your time
and mine
but that’s less important
some animals
have to wait
have to
make a noise
a sound
in return for concern
eyes on eyes but no contact
there are people all alone
and with others
still alone
scared
dying
nothing new
nothing old
lasts
they’ll say they miss you
they’ve been waiting to hear from you
waiting
for action
for love
under the age of 50
with little food
little fresh
the rat died in the bird’s cage
