good evening, all fallen

you who dance amidst the diamonds
you who trudge beneath the underbrush
you who dedicate your stories
you who write with nothing to say
you’re all a failing, fallen star
and yet you’re just like me

i who lay among the poppies
i who jump off the bridge
to swim
to swim

so join me in the water
the temperature is right
so beg me to deliver
a letter i didn’t write
a mixtape deleted
a cannon fired
and get rejected

you who dive into the fog
you who dine
on another’s dime
you who shiver
and mistake
the end for the beginning
it’s over
before it starts

so join me in the river
and glide on with the current
or sink
or swim
