Uncountry

Understand
that everything isn't so,
it never was.

between the forms
and shapes
crystal clear moments
unfold.

where was I then
that I missed them?

hideous, dangerous
monster memories
swipe and slice
lion claws
that leave deep marks
in young flesh.

Unlikely to untangle,
unending.
Understand,
can't you?

the wanting,
the waiting,
the hated
the hating
it was all a waste.

nothing from you
would have been better
than this.
