i put
the flowers
outside in
a pot
i thought
the rain
would water
them it
didn’t rain
and the pot
was quite
small

~~~


live
life
like you could
pull the sun
from the sky and
fill your heart with
light
like
some kind of
terrible
sunthief bringing
darkness
to the world and
death
to the people

~~~

the faucet’s
dripping
again
drip
drip
drip
fall
the
tears
who hurt
you
faucet
