Drain

you can drain this tap
gurgle, swirl down
i think we left our verisimilitude
on the side of the road
back several miles and roads
it was the hallmark
that was stamped out
wash our nostrils and ears
snort water
light your flares
but beware
that secret wishes come true
I hardly know those eyes in the reflection
they’re always on the mend
so shed your grace slowly
wind up a music box
to reminisce on ruin
be easy on your self honey
because who else hands out the penalties?
