SWEET DREAMS
(7/30/17)

we spout
them
every day

empty
sentiments
that have
no power

have
a nice day

better luck
next time

sorry
for your loss

go fuck
yourself

we say
them
as if they're
magical incantations
that may translate
to reality

better
to stay
silent

offer
a wave

a shoulder
pat

a hug

a fist

some physical
manifestation
of true emotion
to transmit
a more efficacious
message

here

have a shot
of tequila

before
you shuffle
off
to sleep
