Slippery Retention

A Poem

Photo by Jack Church on Unsplash

Starlit faces
somehow marshal in a parade
of agony
The selling of the inconsequential
mess has been delayed
indefinitely
Pride was supposed to keep
us
from falling
but that didn’t go so well
Instead the moments where
you held your head
between coffee cups was ultimately
the memory
that slid down & gave you the slip
at the same time
