Verge 2013: Becoming

GOES WITHOUT SAYING

Matt Hetherington

love is a fly you can’t kill

even with a literary work

as usual, grey matter was blocking the sun

and wet winds muttered under their breath

every morning

she put words in his mouth he couldn’t swallow

every night

he wrapped his arms around her like a shroud

at times, the child got between their lips

something ugly was scowling from the glass

the moral of this story is

always put styles over substances

so when will i see you again?
