underland

That unglued, impossibly corkscrewed hope...


    Miss’d your call.

My past-shadow’s
    Been skippin’ each crack,
          For fear a twist in his Momma’s
    Two-job-back,
            Only tip-toeing the vast-black
          Void you’ve built into his no-pole, slip-away slope:

            That unglued, impossibly corkscrewed hope;
        Why, unashamedly, he—
                To this very, every-day—
          Lets loose the play
      In the stiffest rope…

        Just to fall
                Into any other hole.
