break the shell.

Reveal your

Cant blame it,

bred to kill.

Grimmest of



Sad but true,

After Death

your hand rests
on the edge

on the counter
soft lines curving
into the white
shadow of the wall
we take the curtain
turning like a page
in restless sleep
and the sound
of the rain
murmurs cold against
the window

A somewhat hottish heaven.

I found the way by going

Slow, do everything

At 33 instead

Of 78.
