x devalued

we don’t need us,
not anymore
we have our own depths
too deep for each of us
to dive into without
damage
safety, one-life-ness,
it doesn’t decode
as it used to
i have seeds inside
my earth, you have
chlorophylls elsewhere
to sing for with your
warm secret codes
your sickness,
or its illusion,
is only a night’s
drunkenness
i’ve got my change
spent on smalls,
cigarettes,
stuffed animals
my name you call
only in the dark
it hits the wall –
cold, uncaring wall
you wondered,
you wished, but
you didn’t touch
i did, i did then. so,
though i smelled your
ghost in the bus
yesterday afternoon,
i took no steps

you should remain one
with no material substance
i’m your reasonable mute
