I only get scared when the dark comes out.
Light? Weight my friends, not a measure.
I only smell flowers at funerals.
Posies are for pockets
as clasps are for lockets.
I only write when you read it.
I only read when you right it.
There are patterns in stitching,
scars closed with unnatural needlepoint.
to the light
(it doesn't turn me on)
