from by Bull Kelp



Blackened baking pans
years of charred existence
island prison
she didn't look at the price

He makes popcorn
in his 3-piece suit
standing on the back step
adjusting a new watch

But somehow,
happiness stares back at me
with that same blank expression

She wants a man who'll come home
with dirt on his hands
instead he stands at the post office
lusting after the stamps
Taurus or Aries

He writes letters
to his darling dark cloud
words and drawings
always lift her shroud

But somehow,
happiness stares down at me
miming a single tear
