from/to Aaron

 

 

the floor bottom was their treasure

 

they were Toad and Tadpole

 

in a sale/safe relationship

sad most of the time

 

they stayed hidden they looked inside the belt

the conveyor's

 

they were not allowed to look outside

 

sparkle spppparkle, they said

leaking and then bursting in your face

 

Bodies: rinsed and still rotten

rotten and so rinsed

 

the tiled tub was safe so hidden

whenever Toad-so-well-hidden looked into the tiled mirror

the rotten mirrror

 

she was sinking

and it hurt
