we are a match
half lit and well attached
i said “contain me”around you
shimmer shimmer shimmy.
shimmy shimmy shimmer on.
we know you're overrated
all that i see. an exchange with the floor
you’ve no legs at all
so transparent from the day i met you
stale in the plastic crumpled crippled crimped unused
sticking to the roofs of ocean waves
pulling from the roots of leftover grave
show many more blue sharks must i retrieve?
frothy suds of something new.
i began to feel tried
i was a young boy once
but i don’t believe it.
you’re too old and wise to have grown to this
you had to be born 65. you are a nice thing
your plate’s filled with what you crave to eat
about how you’re tired
listen to me bully
i don’t care to know what you’ve seen
your everglades love and ever lasting haze
make it up. i don’t care. just make it seem like it wasn’t me
