It’s Settled


Are you running away too?

We were deep

like ink stains and oil water

How will we get out?

We run

Now every memory feels tainted

As if someone taped over our records

leaving us to wonder

if we are meant to start over

A new film

No, a sequel

that tries desperately

to move just like the first, still

let’s put this one in

and see if we like it

Ignore the mirrors

Ignore the moon casted shadows

that are too familiar

because, it feels
