life is a series of things you put in your mouth

there is nothing as blessed as the hour of sleep
or as vile as mornings on the wrong side of the bed

life is a series of things you put in your mouth
being happy is continual effort

memories wash over the slumber of every aching moment
till current distractions have adequately flexed their muscle

the plant needs watering, the pump needs offing
the bladder needs emptiying, the blood needs caffeine
the gin needs drinking, the music needs playing
all to keep ontological trauma + existential angst at bay

cuddles work best. cuddles are rest.
cuddles are rare. cuddles are now.

i want my cuddles guaranteed;
by an expensive silver ring

life is a series of things you put in your mouth
no, no meaning here
just now. just this miserable, inadequate, aching, lonely
eternal now.
