prune fingers

by lonely carp

supported by


a key to lock the bathroom cabinet

a key to lock the red inside your neck

cut enough a key will fit a hole

but no key could fit the hole inside your soul

paindrops fall into your waterbed

the baby’s crying lift your heavy head

dried shampoo still coats your growing hair

the smell of rusting sadness in the air

prune fingers

is kissing moon princess

prune fingers

is waiting upstairs

another year just went and came

summers filling up with rain

in every calendar I see your name

skin cells swirling round and down while I was sleeping safe and sound a dreamless sleep so deep I thought I’d drowned

unplug your drugs they’re flowing down the drain

behind locked doors our insides look the same

your reaching hand was slapped by senseless blame

and the hands that slapped reached in to pull the chain.
