in a convalescent vacancy
and you, you're dissolute
removed from such elusive worth

i'm divorcing you from me
swinging spade-tip
where the wood splits near the earth

you don't have to hide
at a painful distance
i can't move for these roots

the world reduced to kicking rocks
in deep soliloquies
in a forest without leaves

you don't have to run in fear
i can't breathe
they're choking me

our arrogance like chains
at lengths to let me drop
beneath your weight
between your arms
a vacancy
