silver bedtime story



i have silver slot mouthed grin. open bank. let me in. tonight, you win. i close eyes, silver fish. we make effigies. we 'wish'. i silver the sliver ache. i make it good. i should. i love monsters, silver teeth. beautiful eyes. things beneath. i tell silver stories. i make em good. you could too. ( if only you would )

I like this poem. I like things short and punctuated. And I've been thinking of silver all day.

I rarely like rhyming poetry, because it usually feels forced, meanings that don't fit jammed into words any which way, but this is fun and natural.
