i once heard

You told her that /time was constructed/ and she was too young to hear it.

An eye for raw denim, pressed powder, bottom shelf- highest percentage.

Constructed by whom?

/Who but the rulers of the sky who rake their fingers through the clouds and weave the atmosphere into golden nylon

Who have used a thick needle to push and pull that string through your skull

Even when you’re gloriously blank, laid down in crunchy leaves in autumn- drifting off into the spin cycle- listening to songs from days that have died in your legs/your throat/your stomach- do you feel it tugging?

FOR A LIMITED _____ ONLY!

RUNNING OUT OF ______.

I don’t have _______.

I don’t have _______./

An eye for top shelf- highest percentage, pressed cheekbones, raw silk.

You told her that /that nylon string makes a beautiful cocoon to hibernate in until everyone is gone./
