stories we’ve told

they died through the telling of modern tales:
the long evenings of traffic
the forlorn curvature of the bus route
the happening at x of x
the workers strike strike striking
the development borne through consequence
the encyclopaedic decline of potent labors
the landlord not allowing animals
the spectral bond achieved with furnishings
the swollen pots and chequered rugs
the carpeted excuses
the literacy achieved without a phone
the disturbing regularity and frequency of the hour
the condescending tone of the ceiling
the noise at the back door
the arguments with the walls
the casual, doleful lounging at noon
the constructing of a silo for emotion
the trespass into a dream
the words of her
the devil’s version of events
the gravity of the situation
pulling water from the tap.
