When no one is looking your pencil brain makeup kit loses itself in grids circling and tracing back something important to the inside edge you light a candle and pray for blindness when you etch feelings in patterns and images lost and found and glued down by gravity projecting your fears through your hands to remember what it is you don’t know but chase to the end of a time you thought you were onto something but not anymore because you’re on a thin dial that shifts without warning and then there you are looking at a line you drew and wonder what else you were doing when you made that mark for the sake of anything at all
