The Loser By One1Winged1Angel Cactus colored bed sheets much softer than your own halfhearted diary entries from the life you loaned Their minuscular wingspans saying they found your body somewhere in the wasteland in a barrel with burning money. Silver screen prophets know the location of your brain you probably just forgot it on the airplane seat in Spain Very doubtful sources glimpsed your flickering soul running with wild horses with no clear goals A long lost ex-lover saw your running heart hiding under her green covers camouflaged in the dark ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Behind a Facade of my Own Devising By Waltznmatildah There are so many days Heaped haphazardly So that one runs into the next.
