PLASTICINE

Said my piece
Turn my head
Focus down on incident
Shot me through
A poor phrase and
Smashed to bits my confidence

Level out
With oxygen
Short breath here
And no one sends
Love to all
Peace to you
Static noise and plastic fruit

Now it’s like snow falling down
Now it’s like snow falling down
Now it’s like you’re alone for the first time

High range there
Alcohol
Screaming through
Mercy falls
Headlight twitch
And slow to stop
Soft in speech
A barking dog

Camera roll
You’re not up
To black and white
Shutter stop
Plasticine
Through my hair
Triggering
A slow defence

Now it’s like snow falling down
Now it’s like snow falling down
Now it’s like you’re alone for the first time
