29. Take care

take care, lest the world cast you in total dejection for small crimes
a broken bikespool / sinkcrud & tapgunk / snags in the skin

the internet’s waiting to gag upon your sordid horse skeleton
explain how you failed and fooled and folleyed, but

take comfort in small round pebbles and miniscule bleatings
for today the cost of small mercies is greater than dinosaurs

you woke hard and humble from wrestling with sailors in the night
rope burns in your sins and stubbed ash up the walls

now be a wizard of the afternoon, delight in rain’s psychedelic reflection
the drips on the floor belong to those who let themselves snooze
