Glacial by Leah Shaper

I see you stumbling
here
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
elsewhere
smothered from upward view
by tears of smoke dripping
from bloodied eyes
where scuffles have
shuffled the dust up
as if
lollipops
could never be
and have never been
slowly
sucked away
from your sugared lips
as if
glaciers
don’t shift and slough
even though
their melted water
is at your heels.
