marisol makes her first appearance…

pink flip-flops

i’d always help you tie your shoes;
anyway i was looking for someone
who’d hold my hand during the
scary parts & i don’t mind being that
close. sometimes it’s all i want.

maybe i’d heard it said by a stranger
someone among everyone was
moving faster than me & seemed
pretty sure (more-or-less) what
was going on. all i knew was
i like girls wearing baseball hats
backwards & laughing at every
bad joke that’s ever been told.

it always never makes sense
that marisol sits on the back porch
while interminable distance fills
the closeness between there &
here. so what if i know about
limitations? impermanence is a
bitch,” i told marisol.

her smile arrives on time,
though not related to any
discussion at hand. nothing
moves in a straight line for
more than a few feet; root
beer barrels are as close to root beer
as we’re likely to get in an age
of rice crispie treats.

all of this is insanity & i want all of it.

hard earned nicknames like flower
petals sit on the floor of a church.
quick cuts to places you never see
& we can stamp this union in blood
smeared on windows.
doors.
walls.
steps.
hands.

i don’t really bruise these days.
had it kicked out of me for awhile
& started doing it on my own for
kicks. most of the time i can see
things in this whole new light;
sometimes i’m wrong but at least
i’ll figure it out later.

anyway,
how the fuck are we gonna put
fucking laces on pink flip-flops?
marisol laughs crystal pure,
& the sun stops in the sky
to listen & look.

  1. what color do you like the laces on the flip=flops to be?

    • Like Pink Floyd said, “Any Color You Like” hahaha hope all is well, don’t be a stranger. I totally owe your site a visit too. Tomorrow will be visiting day for me, as i am about cashed out for tonight. Take it easy,

      crb.

  2. coral toenail polish looks good with tropical pink flip flops. She would probably prefer a Red Sox cap. Laces.. well they are always untied so maybe not needed on flip flops.. but skulls would look nice on the straps. Marshmallows melt slow and have to be watched so beware the ticklish distractions. Mr. Sun is sleeping today.
