They are all


A smile

Thick and to the point

A pigment to negate any choice

bares down and swells

Holding back rye and barley rivers

A tiny quiver

echoes in my voice

held high and stumbled


pride in every chord

crosses carelessly

quick and painfully



monster laugh

Laugh your tired laugh

with me

but hide your ugly face

you amuse me no more.
