Itch

July 20, 2021

I don’t remember the last time I felt free
Alien on so many levels, I’m the caretaker
Forever a mess that feels it can never be cleaned or forgotten
The sad clown & manic jester perform

Leaving an empty husk to blow away in the changing guise of nature
It’s dust swiftly becoming a permanent resident
Known but uncared for

Gathering more with every fresh press of a dashed smile
When did the mess start?
When did the cleaning stop?

Itching forward in escalated glee
Taken as wuick & gone for now
The itch can’t be worn away
Start scratching
