Impotency implied, implied like reread intelligence, damn brilliance on ice. Twice for empathy, oh Brett. Yet, I wish I had her clothes. Those flip quotes my mouth could never form. Nor, that ease. Pretty to drink, but it’s print. He didn’t speak much, I don’t think. As I lean against a written arm in the back seat of that taxi, I’m drunk. Stuck on bloody bull ears in love. She wasn’t. I would have told her. She wouldn’t listen with a half laugh.
That turns its head. Yet, red silked bookmarks go to war. For whom, I’ll cross that bridge twice told.
