DECLINE

they set sail in tub-o-ware
chart a course for destiny

bottle their tiny giggles
for a penny

jingle. jangle
keys turn with yearning for home

a rooster debuts with operatic sound
smoke dances on the body of trash

bend acutely in bed
his hand learns that longing is fickle

cast a line but caught a boot
kissed a fish that left only brine.
