drifters

by Werner Branz

between bathroom conversations, drifting ahead of time. black hole brain that swallows lightness, the bodies of writers, her eyes in the soft morning, the soldier, I took all his pride, his dry tobacco. and her eyes in the morning.

I go to sleep like a rat on my fur coat, dead in the sun and slowly disintegrating, limbs scattered and aching.
