2020-09-30 – Careless Friction

night says i’d be wise to
trail its smoke and
crumbs back to
my head,

to crack that glaring
glass and clear
the eyes..

and if so driven
to toy with

must first contain
the spread of


for surrounding woods’
inhabitants rationing
every breath,

each time i strike
the match..

and step outside..
it’s certain
