The Spins

closed door
testing the waters
the waters full of copper plates
and unstable emotions
your heart is a flotation device
with a manufacturers defect
an infection spreading first
from your blood then into
your worldview
(are you as cynical as I’ve become
since coming up empty?)
emptiness is really
a kind of fullness
just because you don’t see Nothing
doesn’t mean you can’t grasp it
and Nothing sure can grasp you
it can full on seize
and smother you
in its imposing breast then toss you
aside when it realizes
you’re not as fun when you’ve
been crushed to death
