Something Broken (January day 10)

if I was going to be destroyed

I would borrow

anywhere in the world

there is something broken

I will take you there


anyone have a candle

I will light it for a laugh

and we can peel each other apart

in the cleansing

like there is still more to say


have your way with me

there is not much left to give

I have watched the tap run dry

lying here on bathroom tile


come clean, tell me

who is the punch line of the universe’s joke

should I return to this ruin

waste my loveless lifeline


teach me how to forget me

repeat what you’ve been looking for

run it through my frozen fingers

until I believe it’s me
