I realized I was drowning in it.

By the roadside 

In the sleeves of my overcoat.

It is raining.

Water is leaking into my shoes

And I forgot to put on socks.

I consider walking miles from here

To think through it.


My mind tries to make sense.

I Realize fucking up ain’t so bad.

Fucking down is much worse.

No one’s fucked down before.

I laugh

And jump,

Turn my neck up toward

The sky and feel the spray on my face.

Cool rain,

Pools in the corners

Of my eyes.


I am under the sky

For now,

Under the real,

And out of control.
