was in your pocket.

was in the palm of your hand.

now i lay on my side

knees drawn up.

i snap shut.

if you come back,

pick me up again,

i’ll come along without a word…

but my time down on the ground

out in the rain

rusted me.

go ahead,

touch me.

i’ll give you a good sharp poisoning

to remember me by.
