Frictionless




Fiction is broken
because we are breaking.

Honesty is kind of my thing.
It means what it is.

Fiction needs friction
where poetry slides.

The better I learn to listen,
the more I have to say.

Even water circling the drain
has somewhere to go.

I will put my poem in you
and you will never forget it.

Echoes are inescapable
until they fade.
