what there is to assume- color and form –
shades of a lesser “being”  infractions and
being born a crime.
conception; admitted but not remembered
she says with a smirk.
and you smile, then frown.
because you remember when the
whole sky was dis-membered , putrid aggregates of stellar
the sky had fallen away with you in it.
you landed in a peninsula of gas , all reduced to the fleck of spit                                                       flammable and handheld like thee tobacco                                                                    here in the arid, barren wasteland                                                                                                              connected with life and   death                                                                                          until the two cannot be told apart
truants lay naked, tossed face down on the ice
they too thought tomorrow  someone else’s
death day.
you are left with dark deposits where recollection pales
