Sweetened September, 
calcified on the horizon 
I have slept for decades in your velvet duvet

The beach suns
have grown cortisol records in my knees
and the cleaved clouds
have started to sweat around my veering arms

I awake 
to the plums taped on the refrigerator 
and granular bullets coalescing into umbrella skies 
I awake 
and feel fumes in my enzymes 
Combustible, sneaky 
(pacing
pacing)
My hollow jaws
swallowed in the interstate of this heaviness
I lie,
an inflammable toy
wheeling in your breath
tethered to your trailing eyes

Clink
Clank 
and ashes
