"don't let it get to you" they say


maybell forgot to
"never look down"
and bobby
forgot to turn the
burner off
Violet forgot to
walk the tightrope
with her heart
burning so hot
instead they let
the worries collect
in the vats
with a lattice-like grip
forgetting felt strange
because they couldn't
imagine what it was
they were to remember
everyone says
"keep in the game"
what game is it?
they wonder
so they stay
buttoned up messes
just
like
me
