What Matters v2.xsomething or another

Something broken
isn’t really

Matter is a constant
It only changes
into something else

Tennis shoes
Sheet metal
Underwear

Given this reasoning
the haircut you had
when you were nine

(Kicking and screaming
quieted only by first
threat of extreme violence
and ultimately
ice cream)

may now be
a rifle barrel
a puddle

You reject the
haircut theory

We talk of how
Ill-advised kisses become
failed relationships

Considered vows
become
thoughtless afterthoughts

Screams
and spittle are not
apologies

Trust exists
until we think
we know better

(the maddened passion
of drunken nights
stretch into months
wakening
a reality
of what
do I do now)

We cringe
at each others
transgressions

sinful admissions
redeemed with
knowing smiles

We laugh and discuss
what we would like to be
when we are dead and gone.

Our hands touch
fingers and lips meet
move into each other

becoming
something
new.
