his master’s choice

hold
cricket
to your ear
listen very hard
that is the sound of being stuck
lonely contagious drinking songs
for the status quo
honesty dropping on all fours 
tumbling in gutters
scrolling down
until
we’re
numb

tempus fidelis

long

have 
i tried
to press you
into fulfillment
will i never learn from the past?
i
sit
and wait,
you always
arrive gracefully
it is my weak faith that stumbles
i
count
you as
my only
true fascination
yet time spent alone with you, rare.
