attempts at control
are unwise
intentions welcome
come anyway

try and take a closer look

so much more
than yet another image
for your collection

I saw you
on Jordon Klepper’s Instagram feed
taking a photo of The Persistence of Memory on your phone

it took you all of ten seconds
it made me want to scream
or cry

all these and more

it bubbles up
as I struggle to make sense
of that which
can never do

all I can
is all I ever shall
and then some

I will let it flow
over and through
my spirit
my soul

an eternity
is barely enough


My Sweetheart will always know
