a birthday


he reads it

you have a need

for extremity of emotion

and a dangerous

pull towards obsession

which is

what he’d said

before it had all begun.

he walks past

another landmark

and realises

its a long way to walk

to understand

your own words.

relaxing the tense

exhaling the held

a body is not a prison

a head is not a home

let it pass

hold to no hope;

these aren’t needs

but childish hopes

and rage is an excess

of tears.

a little older,

if you really want

to count.
