the drum of your passing won't stop practicing on my rib cage
mandolyn

the refrigerator
 1
pops its knuckles
 2
and ice cubes fall
 3
into a tray
 4
that doesn't feel,
 5
 
 
as i prepare
 6
for the chill
 7
of an untamed Winter,
 8
organizing your last words
 9
into mortal rows
 10
of memory
 11
 
 
and a lantern
 12
looks at me
 13
like i'm the last window left,
 14
so i tap the cold
 15
to see if you will snow
 16
into my brooding
 17
 
 
and Tuesday
 18
arches its back,
 19
stretching
 20
against the day you died,
 21
 
 
with Monday's
 22
Siberian breath
 23
still trying
 24

At this moment a pair of cheap nike trainers sneakers that you did not help! So you'll need a pair can be easily transformed into a tent sneakers. design mind is good, because the designers take into account such a possibility: If you wake up one day, life is like drama as turned upside down, and you find yourself stranded on a deserted island instant ignorant forced to survive only play along, beating the road during the day, then night? You need shelter to shelter, especially when tropical storm comes. At this moment a pair of Cheap Puma Suede that you did not help! So you'll need a pair can be easily transformed into a tent sneakers.
