pointless observations of meaningless things {i}

{v}
the holy man & his sacred bottle of evian
can fuck off for all i care.
bless you
{like you achoo'd}
like it'd do anyone any kinda good

{iv}
i did not see
your grief then
& now it's as tho
i am witnessing
something personal
& obscene
something shameful
that i have
no business seeing

{iii}
you are more preoccupied
than i am
with her rosebud lips
in shades of cerulean,
her papyrus skin
marbled like raw beef...

... i did not look
too closely

this time

{ii}
& i have frozen
unencumbered
by tears

my lungs unable
to fill with enough air
to scream

it's only fair

{i}
i watered the plants
because someone had to
& it would be a shame
if something else died in my care
