Sputter - Poem by Cherry jump

sputter.

spinning down
like the snow flakes
that fall from the sky
on this unholy day
of unholy days

sputter.

and if i shut my eyes tight enough
the colors distract from the sting
like orange
and sometimes blue
i know what to do
when daisies die

water helps it grow
but maybe it doesn’t
and when that happens
try blood

sputter.

like the gun i hold in my hand
i have never felt so cold
watch the leaves turn brown
and then fall off

sputter.
flecks of red in the snow
