Sugar rush (a poem)

Red Vines and Pocky are quite the combination…

You are too far away for me
to see your sideways glance

My studied pulse
cannot impress you
from this distance

In my lackadaisy
I cannot see you
as I collect relics and rumors
from among the ruins
I have scattered about me

Reflect
in incandescence

Dissolve
into straw
