THIS IS A POEM ABOUT THE INNER WALL OF THE CHEST AND SMOKE AT THE DUSK OF BATTLE 10.12.17

10.12.17

 

 

 

(learn distance)

panel my name upon
the inner wall of your
chest where your heart
breathes like smoke
at the dusk of battle.
panel it there.
memorize the shape
of it and through the
dips and valleys of the
word learn my pain
and teach yourself
my distance
my pain through distance
what it means to
fall forever away from
that which you desire
that which sustains you
