That Experience Anymore


never learned to sit up straight,

stop dragging feet,

stand up tall,

take deep breaths

 

nor want to live –

 

gave what there was to give

listening to Ramones

and let fine German steel

cut through a decade

doing for others

who could afford

such luxuries.

*

went way wrong

to catch

fall of stars

burning hands

too sore to realize

 

not sure if there’s more to meaning but when something wants to be seen it appears

ready and dressed

for a final moment.

*

then there’s those who pray

– cupcakes

– kittens

– puppies

– a pony

for well-endowed

hopers

who won’t waste hope

on weaker wants

*

life is long –

only slightly more so

than disappointment’s

wingspan

hugging

the grounded.

*

without a silence

cars

go on

– boxes

in trunks –

en route

to stranger parts.

*

there’s no way to exist in

that

experience

anymore.
