"Caroline Doesn't Stay" by James Diaz


be careful

turn around dark eyes

the crumbling

is crossed in gold

 

how is anyone able

to cope

kick the wall

call on god

there is no

goddamn space

anymore

 

here, we are all here

packed in

sweating the earth out

of our bodies

 

you know

this isn't really a song,

don't you

 

and that I could never sing

and dance at the same time

 

o for fuck's sake

steal something

on your way out

break a law, a bone

a window - anything

 

don't just stand there

like you're working a puzzle

the pieces of your mouth

glued and glazed with artificial heaven

 

do you need me to show you,

like this

break down the whole 

into its parts

 

build it up again

row by row

 

let it ruin you / fill you up

 

you're a good cup.
