a vocal ensemble of licorice kisses
astute and erratic in making my wishes
distasteful and brilliant
basking in cement
making a problem where nobody's looking

the soft remedy
silicone incendiary
damned if I do
but I don't

the lake that we dream about
time that's forgotten while
spending like pennies
as dollars start adding up

I think about you like I'm waiting for a bus
that I know is never coming
but I keep on staring
at my watch

dropping in on stopping it from making sense
tell me that I'm crazy or delusional
I think it makes a difference
