From That Which Comes After

Alexis Pope

Where are you this
Is getting obvious
I’m a little fresh
The water isn’t
Hot enough there’s
Space left to fill
I’m not passing
The attendance sheet
Around today there’s
A noisy street a yellow
Hangover turns
Into the next day
And I’m still in it
Walking across
Your hair falls
To the floor
When cut it’s true
I talk about blood
It’s only to tell
There’s something quiet
So alive it’s changed
From one color to
The next time I see you
Won’t be soon enough
But we have these
Parts let’s see
What we can do
