    Was calm, perfect, quiet.
    Extended finger,
    immaculate nails,
    painted, intricate colour.

    I pick my teeth,
    I think, no more.
    Almonds, dried fruit.
    Powdered sugar.

    A veil of this.
    The widower, the bitch.
    A jerk, a class apart,
    so private, such a risk.

    Take a picture,
    keep it to yourself.
    I don't want to know.
    Not again, not again.

    ive always had a certain fondness for this kind of poetry. its simple, and doesnt overcomplicate itself for the sake of being more overtly flashy.

    i liked it.
