Vicious Aloe

she she she
has no idea
a carnival-poor sleep
she she she
she wishes
for a charcoal night

too serious to be in kind
cascade of callous hearts
the truth is buried deep
in mud, in clay, in stone

he he he
has no idea
a losing circus dream
he he he
he enchants
for a chalkdown wish

we candles in the midnight
from the cradle to the grave
are crying in our closets
for half our lives
at least
