teddy

Leave me alone
Coffee and smoke
I stay at home
Like an old dead oak

I'm not here
I just get laid
I'm just a bear
I'm not afraid

You can hear me
Near the darkest lake
Of your dream tea
It's not a fake

I'm not here
I just get laid
I'm just a bear
I'm not afraid


– In my sketchbooks, bulk words, writing fragments of emptiness
and then, hibernate –
(nothing to do with my brand new book in progress)
