Consume.

Denver Pittman

I have been so afraid of consuming.
Of swallowing down a life. Wings and all. Of swimming into my own thoughts. And of abrasion to what has been. I. Have been so scared to breathe in the transgressions that they have for once, inhaled me. Smoke rings, they smell like my clothes and my emotions smell like the past. Clinging, clung to droplets on the outsides of a perspiring jar. And I have seen these thoughts from the outside. Wooden panes, cracked and soiled with what looks and feels like tears. But is actually rain; just precipitation. And our participation in that, over again. Cracks in wooden surfaces remind me that I am not bereft of this. I am not changed from this. I will live with the thoughts. Fish bowls of circumstance: and I will be better. Now. And only now. That is what I’ve come to know.
