he sold me out
i was just looking
for a place to rest
go back inside
although i'm tired of staying
in slanting shadows and gazing
longingly at those turned inside out

tried to let it go
but it comes back in a dream
barbed at the tip
special knots that make
mobius green with envy
and setting aside the black
