Fallen

The point, above all
is to be out, to remember
which side of the word
to put the ,comma to thank God
that there’s a dependent clause
on this page and I must continue
on the next, or else I’d lose this
track, crash, forget-

because yeah,
I felt this coming
but I didn’t think I’d see it,

all his sucking need
a ballast of fallen avarice
the shrapnel of his silence
cutting up the couch pillows
or sticking from the carpet

and we’re not getting
our deposit back
because for Christ’s sake,
we got blood
all over the tile
and bleach didn’t do the trick.

No, I didn’t expect
to see him,
enormous and brooding
face down again
and I have run
out of the magnanimity

to place the black
sluice of pause
to piece together
the scurried phrase

to pry him off the bed,
try and roll him over.
