Unmown Grass

the longest sleep happens

in unmown grass


a field behind

an abandoned house is


an invitation

to not understanding what it is


flora

as a substitute


for

memories


vintage footage

of a spectacular mistake


it's a place

no longer a place


and you yourself not even dreaming

just hiding from


the

police?


this pretending

is a side effect


a longing to destroy

that part of yourself


that

needs


the wild weeds

the smelly shadow


yeasty

like insect-


beer and then

the sleep becomes a growth


the sleep

is greener


than you

need it to be
