EGGS: 'Clean Sheets'


1 comment

There's no gentleness
To your frustration.

It's just unrealistic
To ever expect
Some kind of
Weathered mercy
From your homely face
In the doorway
At the Golden Hour.

Its like a throttled
Sort of manic ambition.

I struggle to find
A calm place
On your face
That glows
With maternal authority
Magistrating a Tent City
Of the heart.

I am so tired
Of being so tired.

There's a fake place
That people must make
For each other to bask
In the Golden Hour
Where your socks are clean
And The Replacements play
As you slow-dance with the sick and old.
