spinnin’ the greatest hits from the barflypoet yesterday and today!
compassion is hell
you draw her over your shoulders
the warmth you’ve been waiting on for years
honey in an otherwise tepid life
and even as she leaves your skin flushed
you never seem to notice her fingers
have grown a bit colder from wear.
