Pree, John, String St after MomJean's funeral

This house is old enough to be all of our mothers, I agreed.
I poked inside a brown box in the front room. The dark panels seemed to hold the windows just enough but they managed to slip here and there. The sofa was stained to match broken, where it's arms seemed so pious the center sagged brazenly suggesting elopement or worse. The walls were tanked with drawings and paintings on every kind of surface. Bits of curled paper and dry panel hung from filament and drooped from spun ribbons of muslin. There was a pile of yellow and green photo's on the table. They'd been shuffled to the side in a disordered and hasty manner.  
The limits of an unkind, no not that. Hope does spring, John settled on qualifying. Vaughn's sweet. He's young and quotable like that. Oh Vaughn, you know he's tired when he nods off to sleep in his own piss.
The road less traveled leads to better times then these, her hand was candle red. Pree pushed her glass across the table. The bottle was almost gone and the radioset had dimmed a bit as the power slipped into another brownout. I like MomJean's plenty. It hasn't changed much has it?
They were high, I pointed out.
Oh fluff of thy wren tinder of my dawn, She laughed emptying the bottle.
Yer dunkish...
Spirits tank thank booze, She laughed again.
He liked that sound.

Turd Grinder IV: Keep me in line for a little while longer, just until you have to go again. The dark wave and the first jolt from my morning coffee are elements that have yet to sheep. Looking through a ton of old glass is hard. Sitting down and sifting through the odd bits of sparkle and dust left inside this hidey-hole at the bottom of this calendar. There's almost always more bitter mixed in there then there is the sweet.  Fontso: I'm so happy-happy to see that this work is being edited down. All of it's been sitting on the back of my desk forever. Where plastic gets soft in the sun and the desks window looks out south all day long it's always so hot. Turd Grinder IV: There's safety in warmth, freedom from reprisal among the pillows, in the soft down. The clock inside is as deep as a clouds kiss.  Fontso: Onion thugs, yello…

In fashion, passive is to envy the figure smote.

Juniper, cedar and all that's old tends to settle on the bus in the corner by this door. It's not quick, joints are popping like failure. Left alone in the kitchen, looking for matches until it can light the stove. "There once was a night here," I've said as much before.
Corn conjured syrup from the corn that I brought from the back of the store. The simple pleasure of falling into that warm slip isn't like drying off or tempting the man at all. It's a lottery with pages of never knowing it all the first time that I was there.
A three way intersection where the street is wet. There's shrink-wrap that's been spooled across each of the pedestrian walkways. It's secured with bulky knots to the street lamp, the sign post and the scooter at each of the corners. There's a garage door or something else done up in yellow with blue steel doors. In the street there's garbage and soon enough an umbrella will join your car keys.
