The Time Something Almost Happened To You But Didn'T - Poem by Shaye Anderson

You called me
more beer than breath
panting like canines and chimneys.
I held my forehead with one hand
knowing one day the seams would break
spilling out ink and amateur drawings
of music in two-dimensions.
“Complication-Seekers”it says in adhesive bondage
where our patriotism should be.
