Sprinkler-made shallow seconds
changes its surface to sunken
ships, to sand-smothered splinters.
From smooth skin to sour-scrunched
shallow grooves. Sip to sweat sun
and shadows, to stale seasons like
second-hand smoke succumbs to
sentimental grooves of sunken stone.
Sloppy seconds changes its surface
to story spoiler specks of should
and would, to sand-smothered splinters.
