‘five of cups’


let secrets bubble
in your gut
only little sips

be bitter when
the wean-offs happen
eat guilt up
weep with thirst
suck down every gulp

stop wishing for the
steady diet
there once was

feel sunlight slide away
look off to the side
be tired, be unamazed
stop the desperate tick
against break-time

mock nature!
swim upstream
swear it’s one last time
then habits die
and you?
– a life lived more in line
with proper fish, with physics.

then when nothing thrives
and you feel your planet waning
make your wishes….
stay with your sinking ship
take comfort in your
old star guides

do not call nature what it is!
let your soul tell death
its fearful lie…
don’t think upon your ashes.
