Post-booze: I would guddle you.
When sequences fly across
windscreen of wretchedness
I feel contrite and curse:
hormones driving the demeanor.
Geographical distances hasten the gaps.
To seasons —
soiled or steady
add their indentations.
The persona is spiky and scared:
unknown outweighs the known.
Repetitiousness in questioning
snatches the softness,
the pugilist’s stable develops.
