Sirens slow my answers. He slips before he changes. It is made up and black and it breaks off like a hundred degrees. Like you’ve given our kids, who will never be born. Something that we thought we were, a part we used to keep so prescribed that you forgot. Poured down the wall until it leaves.
You watch us fight ourselves to blood. Like heaven walking to the cities, as if it hadn’t already a hundred times. What you don’t remember is running the water very hot so that your wires hook forwards. You sucking my finger awake. I want more than half of you this time.
