Consider the Time
mysteries come & mysteries go
but what i really want to know is
why is it such a long way down
when you’re hanging at the end of your rope?
& why is grammar so difficult
when you’ve been drinking all day & night?
when you scowl at the hint of light
after you’ve been hiding inside for years
history starts & history stops
& the vegetation grows over everything
roots reaching up & over the top until
your house is your tomb & you’re not mad at all
