    nonsense

    miniatures (you)

    Filament

    your fine twiggy legs tired. a knee caked in blues. like patty. bend at the thigh, dip into a puddle to swim. cast off shoes but not clothes. pop out all plush, all shimmery aglow. blonde roots shine gasoline purple, streaked into highlights, a tinge, a ripe reddened toe caught on the lip / dip of sidewalk. like slap. time to start spinning, you need fluff. a puffed letter jacket, can never hang out to drip-dry. direct is better than the round about post. remember that middles of packages are not hard packed but pliable. like give me a lick. when cold—

    it’s never time for icicle fingertips stuck to a tongue

    quick, send the wire transfer direct to your sisters left ear—
