What happens
when a poet’s voice
Escapes existence
Where do the words go

Do we lay allterations
Shaped into lilies
On the grave

Do we burn the
Pages of poetry to
Send smoke signals
To the heavens

Poems capture life
Adding to us
Felines luck

risk & reward
Don’t see eye to eye

Death don’t look good
On poets

Somethin about it
Aint quite write

Trading wassail
For tears

Teem

“When the closet cracks
And the light teems
It hurts at first
The pupils shrink away unready
But the soul aint hiding no more
Did u love the me I let u see?
Will u love the me I am?”
