It felt good!
And, though the risk was great,
We blew the dust off older habits
Refining them to serve our purpose
Grinning as you spilled the pepper-pot
Unlocking closets full of fractured bones picked clean by mice

But, for the jokes
We felt it “quite jejune!”
The nature of the circumstances
Warranted a change in tone to
Soften blows struck from a throat so dry
Assaulting horses long since dead with whips long since untrue

*Nothing felt so right
With nothing gained from all that you had to say
I've got nothing more to offer from this mouth
That once you kissed so hard
Hard enough to ward off any thoughts I had
That you were only in this as a dalliance
But all in all, it felt good!

It felt good.
Wading through the rage
And holding fast to ancient bygones
Ringing ears for miles around with
Fodder for the masses and archives
To be poured over by minds much greater than mine


from Offset from the Normal, released March 1, 2019
