sprung lament

myers park 1

A spendthrift heart
Goes broke nonetheless
When the money runs out
With the guy on the motorcycle.

We put the roof up first.
We were young.
I didn’t have a belly.
Your ass wasn’t so wide.

How many walls did we raze
Until the ceiling became the floor
Like some game you play
In the back of an elementary school

classroom when its raining out
and the teacher needs a break
as much as her students?
Enough I guess.
