jinjer on the edge

we don’t have to go home
we can carve up your nightmares
and feed them to the piranha,
take loan sharks for swims
up the engorged Orinoco,
rinse from parched hands
mistakes made madly,

I’m going to sharpen my wit with an angle grinder,
relocate to another universe,
saturate the inner self
with tales of epic indigestion,
act as though there’s nothing wrong,
misread headlines while swallowing Lilliputian lies

I won’t tell you what I’m really thinking
it would change the way you look at me
