sudden one

Midnight came and went
Jesus gossiped about
on am radio

Why are you
name dropping God?

jesus i’m tired
my ears and my eyes

All forty years of me
fall apart

Tomorrow when the
sky turns

i will roar like a tiger
to the whistle of steam

i will suck on ceramic
and coffee and cream

fuck all the noise
i got tangerine
