a bad one
peace

maybe you’ve looked for it nights before
 1
between the beads of bourbon
 2
in the pages of a thesaurus
 3
 
 
a tongue,
 4
a cherry stem,
 5
a knot that’s tied too tight
 6
 
 
could you cry Saturn to sleep
 7
jam yourself into a pea,
 8
and jam me underneath
 9
 
 
could i go on
 10
a quest for hydrogen
 11
try to put you down on paper
 12
 
 
you appreciate the intoxication
 13
and i don't mean the booze
 14
 
 
this is all just
 15
some translation
 16
as graceful as a noose
 17
 
 
as perfect as perpetual motion
 18
ugly like the concrete
 19
in your knees
 20
 
 
eight out of ten times your mouth would betray it
 21
what's a good thing
 22
if we never made a bad one
