Will Burke

mi brittle heart and loose loafers come to an end.
I had stan.  built in coal.  the way a pigeon fights.
to cause water.  my money felt.  3 times.  held.

the president is gooey.  wants a warmer bed.
to sink a whale.  requires a boat.  or enough asphalt.
to complaint.  a heavy sea.  to plastic margins.

we offered the guard.  a stolen cigarette.  shroud.
a former fireman snickered.  held her breath.

watched the sun.  false as ever drip.  in a tea bucket.
