I WANT MY STOMACH TO IMPLODE

LIFE CAN BE BEAUTIFUL
BUT ONLY IN SMALL OFFERINGS

I HAVE LOVED SO MANY PEOPLE LATELY
THAT IT HURTS TO THINK ABOUT
BECAUSE FRIENDS ARE HARD TO MANAGE
AND TO ACCEPT IT'S JUST HOW IT IS
AND IT WILL RARELY WORK OUT BUT I FEEL OK
THIS HAS BEEN OK

I KEEP FALLING ON KEYS
THIS POEM WANTS ACCIDENTAL KEY STRIKES
BUT I CAN'T GRANT THOSE
BECAUSE I WANT TO SAY SOMETHING

I CANNOT SAY IT
ATOMS CONTINUE TO MULTIPLY

SAY SOMETHING ABOUT THAT

LEAVE

THIS IS OK
BUT NOT GOOD
