The way stars illuminate
the taste of pop rocks.
The light of a lightbulb
The color inside of the clouds.

have Lincoln and George
with my knees bent
and my face withered
at last I am taken out
just to buy a taco

Rusty Nights

a dirty day
old Southern hill
just upon a windy night

two people fighting, faces red from crying
food you eat fast
