like that

it’s the sudden silence
the sudden stop
from the
go go go
to the emptiness
of falling
in newtonian liquids
it is a silence
that either is
deafening
or a precursor
to having gone
deaf
dead
numbed
left out to dry
in the sun
salted
filetted
preserved in amber

the candle
snuffed out
as the band
fades to distortion
as the crowd
that was once
vibrant
begins to mill about
restlessly
then suddenly
turn to leave
as one

it’s like that
but alone
it’s like that
but it hurts
it is exactly
like that

right now

like
digging your toes
in the sand
but it is really
broken glass
and the sky rains
isopropyl
onto all the cuts
