isolate 4

our huddled loneliness of years past
income fixed
far below the surface
of want

we had one another
and even then

love moved
like science after death
synchronous

exact

we were for us what no one
knew or could
see

electricity of being caught
living this way
otherwise isolate
left 4 lost

then came masquerading in wax
taxing the spirit fallen
away

the heart of ink we smudged
tore in diverse ways
apart

barbed wire knifed
squeezed like cash
touched to fire

pinned on the arm
to fade
