a propensity for intensity 

with a braille ridden heart

I chart my navel to pastures 

new bastards and half hearted gestures

pester my chums buddies of a 

different rung 

twisted or ladder rather than latter 

batter down the hatches

and make sure I’m sprung

like spring would wing it

If I hadn’t won

unspoken son

with stingy word syllabuses

constructs of what I’ve done

salty sworn in Rolodex

names that spiral out

and give reminder to whats gone

I’ll remember them

when all is said and done
