Cleaved

The past falls away
As if cleaved
Leaving us lighter
To enter the future
But aching at the loss

Coins

Coins of the realm
Swim like fry to the sea
Becoming sunken treasure
For those willing to plunder
Davey Jones’s locker

Razor

Each hair that burns away
Is one step closer to the day
I can chuck that razor
And forego the laser
To feel pretty
When I’m about in the city

Trough

Hiding in a trough
I await the next wave
To lift me to a peak

Defiant

The defiant child
Does not know
They steal from their future
When resistant to aged wisdom
That crosses them so

Gulping

Great hopes crash land
When wind beneath your wings
Is sucked away
In gulping breaths
By fear

Debtors

In debtors dreams
Avoid parking garages
Loading docks
And men
Or you’ll end up in a crate
Opened on fields of war
