And the Coffee is Cold

It only exists in the present
when reality does not intrude.

I am here.

Always under lights,
the sinister hum of the mercury rapture.

We are all burning.

This walk is a climb.
This ink is betrayal,

holding our names between lines,

speaking into unlit rooms,
where the promises won’t hold.
