from False Spring
Leave it behind. Leave these thoughts
behind at the bar, in the bottom of a drink,
or leave them in my dreams, kept safely
in my sleep & forgotten upon waking.
I was so excited to give you the book
I knew you'd like, that I never finished
reading it myself. False spring is full
of distraction & impulse. No need to think
of the future or carry things through.
