wishing in heavy rich

voice heavy rich
honey
crystallized wishes
to drip
again
corpse lookin for
sidewalk
to be scraped off of
she compels

razor rain
scarred
honey veins
bled sweet
icicles
rich in perfect
formation

funeral train snakes
its way devours
track creeps only
sign of life a gathering
of worms

& morning municipal
maintenance hose
sweet sticky off
sidewalks

i hear you
now in bees trees
cracks in sanitation
sidewalks
voice heavy rich honey
sweetens
breakfast
as traffic drones
distant

you saw honey
in black in white but
i taste
in color

ads perfect in
pitch rabbit ears
feed pictures with
static buzz

flowers hum in
spring welcome bees
pollenate make
honey i visit
watch their busy
turn to buzz wires
short-circuit
and i wish i
could taste your
voice heavy rich
honey
drip again
