the usual mistake

Written by: nathan martin


 

brutalized senseless happenstance
 with a corkscrew conscience
 full of cheap wine.

 daylight rammeses unraveling the 
sheets in the morning.

three bottles tipped sideways lieing
 against the alarm clock.

 such a strange cracked nautilus,
 my eyes flushed with water
  in a cheap sink.

 but i will spare the stranger in my skin.

  live until it becomes all to usual.
