BURGUNDY BREATH

BURPING BURGUNDY BREATH BUBBLES POPPING AROUND MY HOME
FROM THE MOMENT I SAW YOU PIERCE MY PHONE
IT’S UNDENIABLE; EVERYONE AROUND ME MUST BE CURSED
I CHALLENGE YOU TO TRY AND MAKE ME FEEL ANY W-

stop it. breathe.

…ORSE STUMBLING TO THE MIRROR WITH MY HAND TRACING THE WALL
BLOTCHED LIPS PEELING BACK AGAINST MY MOUTH ON THE FLOOR
WHAT A WONDERFUL SIGHT
SUCH A WONDERFUL N-

the wound is raw; you’re making it seethe.

…IGHT I’M FINE I SWEAR
JUST IN A CYCLICAL NIGHTMARE
GOT A SILVER LINING WAY UP IN THE CLOUDS
BUT IT’S HARD TO GRAB IT WHEN YOU’RE UNDERG-

i’m trying to think of a better oath than my sorry.

…OUND FEELS GOOD TO GET IT OUT
THROUGH THE RIPPED CHORDS FROM MY MOUTH IT SPOUTS
I DON’T WANT TO BE IN THIS STATE MY EYES ARE SWOLLEN AND SAD
SORRY ABOUT THE WINE, DAD

tomorrow we’ll start patching up our body.
