Spilled Lip

After reading Kral Majales (King of May)

 

the rip of cold, cold air on flesh

this rush I get from your kiss

a fleecing of my lips

a Word pressed into breath

 

it spreads across

catches in every throat

gives pause

 

I was once the King of August

in dorms with single beds

a practiced goodbye

skull shattered from impact

 

a sad wreck I became

a messy poet

 

a cavity of grief

a face wretched

with spilled lips

 

a cold, cold night sealed with a cold, cold kiss

I wrote this poem from a cold, cold seat in a bleak room

mid Hell.
