anxious and decoding, instead of vividly exposing.
the tile corners felt too stale, so we replaced them all
with craft store felt and dry wall,
and knock-off wrapping paper from your aunt's house.
the cynicism starts from the corners of your smile,
all the way down to your mouth.
it's a new way to talk about it,
it's your best friend's couch.
half a six-dollar bottle away,
every goddamn day.
she just feels too chic,
spouting misread quotes from a philosophy text book,
she speaks in breaking voice and cracking verse.
the corners would've looked much better.
all the way down from the corners of your temples,
it's just getting better.
