Glacial by Leah Shaper

I see you stumbling
in a benzo haze
wearing the fur
of a drenched cat
chewing on shadows
on the ground cast
by the overhead sun
you’ve forgotten about
not like the one you look over at
smothered from upward view
by tears of smoke dripping
from bloodied eyes
where scuffles have
shuffled the dust up
as if
could never be
and have never been
sucked away
from your sugared lips
as if
don’t shift and slough
even though
their melted water
is at your heels.
