Past Favorites

“Forks and Knives” by Kevin Sullivan

 

feeling romantic

even over graveyards and cigarettes

past my field of vision,

out of my life

these thoughts, counterfeit nostalgia

 

quiet bedrooms

which I’ve just entered

offer opportunities I’ve never had

(I never will, I can project

legions of fantasies between four walls)

life is a mixture of standstills,

resistance, and falling

the elements will swallow you happily

without fidgeting forks and knives
