Random Poem:

if it snows will you lock me outside?

my love isn't safe with you
and i won't share this shroud
you wrap me in,
like i'm leftovers
from Sunday brunch
find another tomb
for her satisfactory eyes–
you prayed i would sleep
under rocks,
not 'like' them
but now i throw them
at the calendar
you never replaced
since the day we broke down
in Boise
