Unreliable

Updated: Aug 31, 2021



Remember how you

worried about the

late train, unreliable

transportation, you said,

the Europeans are

unreliable, you said,

I search you for

guarantee, any, but

you are lost

how I'd like to

get lost. Forever, you say,

is how we console

children you don't believe in

consolation but I am

a child in my

wishing


Remember the sweet

taste of exhaustion

I fed you words

watched as you chewed

on the sounds of my home

you fell asleep mumbling

four useless words


I cannot be with you

in my sleep

if you don't believe in

forever, might you say

my name one more

time before you

go away
