Illustration Before Waking
Lean back on lyric
while eyes lose focus of the tiles in
your words, the mark of a loosening grip-
Respectfully, what could such a
stoic heart uncover?
What will chip the paint of our foster home
Trace the you in underscored, underappreciated,
unnatural to friendship our new love made-fine
for old creeps like us to canvas back blind.
