Chipping Teeth

you’re right, it’s beastly
it’s a beast
with citywide halitosis
don’t deny you wrote this choked up and choking
you smell the chlorine?

oh no
save your soul
for me

raw and boyish
you float down, joyless
to LA then back to the rain
poor freak chipping teeth

breathe in
’cause breathin’ is what you do
submerged roads meet on high ground
submerged roads meet on a plateau

breathe in
’cause breathin’ is what you do
you’re rawer than you were
you punctured your cocoon

breathe in
’cause breathin’ is what you do
your sleeping bag sprung a leak
and nobody cares but me

don’t forget the happy ending
don’t forget you don’t go down
no, you don’t go down

not yet
