I didn’t give you a friendship bracelet or a cheap metal pendant. Should’ve. Maybe then I’d remember, looking at it, why I chose you.
Silly to think there’s choice, that this isn’t a shit-storm of accident, hierarchical puppetry, occupations drawn together like code strings.
Forgive me, Will, but it’s better reason than silver I betray you. And when the crow asks, tell him, I could’ve strung your heart like Thanksgiving meat, but I kept you, close, like Krueger.
I’ll sweat you in my dreams, with endorphins.
