approximately eight warning shots later,
i still don’t like guns

if i’m so luminous,
why didn’t you find me sooner,
why’d you waste your time with
all that careless filler, there are
studies about that you know

(no question marks
because the questions are either
rhetorical, empty or loaded)

and i buy you an ice cream cone
on a day that’s smooth because
i am too busy to think about
how unhappy i am

and it’s not smooth anymore
when we get home, because
the bed has tentacles and i can’t stop
counting all the holes in my breathing
