Touchups to baseboards

BY: shelbi henny

supportive to manicures
rusty nails 
timing was focusing 
and catching wrinkles 
in your hair 
perpetual to indecisive 
we escaped the glare
taking the gloss
in routines that
space us out 
in choosey affairs
i never dared 
comfort and the
ability to predict
that this would fail 
yet i worry not 
just anxiety to 
know this is something 
and indecent to my
usual cyphers
clearing evidence
that this awkward
slumber is refreshing
relations breaking 
molds and floating 
rusty nails pulled 
and tile applied 
manicure polish
redefining the 
structure of time
