hotel room sleep
tripping back deep time
almost talking
almost running out of time

the lamp came on
as a morning alarm
we used to have deep friends
and provocations

the way you were about me
seemed such a deal breaker
now it seems i am more
present and open

'til i start to crack
running my mouth off
clutching a flowered pillowcase
from tours of old

we struggle for more words
brought on by the photos
twisted and gifted
awkward and sifted into a fine dust
