Let’s cut the ropes

let’s cut the battered ropes of need,

the auburn marks now leave the skin,

please, please, take heed,

unattach this frayed heart pin.

 

flung it towards the pyramids screaching under the night,

on it, stars piling up like a stack of pancakes,

and you gulp them with your hunting knife,

but know this, I’ve just upped the stakes.

 

chase across the earth, unforgiven,

rolling it like a boulder in toothache rain,

like a frosty bubble, just enliven,

squeeze the world through a hoop of newborn pain.

 

look at the ivy dripping from the treetops,

nibble on Time, slurp the sugary air,

go on now and don’t wait for moths,

you cannot mend this snare.
