Question -Mature

does your body ache with an absence
you have been unable to fill?

Question -

when you’ve licked the last few drops
of whiskey from your lips and exhaled
the last breath of fire for the night,
do you wish it was my mouth yours
could search for in the darkness?

Question -

if time multiplied by distance is space
then why are we still in orbit around
each other like the moon orbits the
earth orbiting the sun?  

Question -

explain to me the theoretical formula
that accommodates for these mercurial tides
that have corrupted our motherboards and
stained the oceans of our veins with this
watered-down neglect?

The End
