they died.

around an inch from my chest

beneath the sky and above an earth

they died a zillion times

like little children’s laughter cracking

i could hear my voice

splatter

like blades running through transparent water

little smiles

erased with pleasure

right when they were just born

sweetness constantly stained

by the clouds

of a thousand messy days

i knew

they were coming

yet i stood to be massacred

who would have known

who could tell

their intentions that appeared

so mild on surface

would ruin something

so naively

opaque.
