Mandolyn ...


cry me a creek, not a river


unless you can sail a boat
down a ripple
that is made for a crippled wind
spin my wit
on the dance floor, trance floor
keep the door open-

i might want to swim
away from the sand
in the glass- it keeps dripping

the faster it moves
the more i intrude
on how much time death
plans on taking-
