Flower Child

from by Teethmarks



Dropped out of life when she dropped you. You pass the time. The sun rises and sets when you want it to - just close your eyes. That little girl’s so far away, she don’t know where you are. Spin down the hole and you wake in a bed or a cell or your car. This ain’t no way to say goodbye. Rain patterns the glass on the driver’s side. You dug this rut, you selfish fuck. Swallowed the key. The past comes alive in your dreams, in the abject dark. They fade in the grey of your eyes, in the skin of your arms. The winter months are hungry, they’ll skin your bones. Might as well spend your money drinking alone.

The sky, a pall.
These days,
a slow and ugly crawl.

Inside your mind, you’ll breathe
a clean and burning hell.

This ain’t no way to say goodbye. Heat sputters and spits from a vent nearby. If your nature be your enemy, your fatal flaw, better to break and lick the blood from off it’s claws. The writing’s on the wall.
