Come Clean

Come           clean

          not too


Sorrow ful of longings

Tea alone with


In      sin      cinder      dent      dental      logo      logous


As mud slab dashing slide
As tub claw foot sink into linoleum
As cat paw scratch a torn sofa to shreds
As tatoo’d lizard bite draws blood
As glasses upside down reflect a candle
As one can just sit at times and take notes

It wasn’t
as if
I had said it
was effortless.

Will it rain?

Adam Gregory Pergament
