Thoroughly wrung dry by this point
I am out of anything interesting to say.
I am reinventing meaning, less to make
a statement but more to simply be.
Be more of a person, and less of a poet,
those wretched, godforsaken things.
Wretches who write for the sake of God
while using their gods as placeholders.
Place a hold onto this world of ours,
it’s slightly askew and rolling away.
A cue for the record to be flipped to B-sides,
a needle spinning in its groove, quietly and built.
Quietly, we built a cathedral of needles
out of the static-noise site of yesterday’s deaths.
Yesterday, static, died sightless in a noisy room.
Castaway, thoroughly wrung dry like an orange.
