Cannibalizing Nostalgia

I need to take a walk on Saturn
black robes/dead eyes

smoke the promises in orbit (adrift)
little white lies

get high on every
what if … almost … not quite

sleep sweetly in lost spaces tonight
in the pines/you know you’re right

I need to taste the dust
powdered on your burdened wings

smell the anger you exude (imbibe)
angel of desolation

get hung on every
hang nail … cut cord … broken star

fall softly through empty vacuum
in the abyss/our own hearts consumed
