if you put a carcass
on the roof, the rats
will get it before
the birds

I do my coughing
on the roof
you do your
proving

you impress the doctor
with a bouquet
I ask stupid questions
that I hope

sound like love
then we go get ice cream
you choose something brilliant
I get chocolate

people celebrate
having finished the maze
nevermind
getting out

we’ll start
a new life in it
we’ll get ice cream
after our negative tests

then drive up and down
the one road
covered
in string lights

revving our lack
of ideas
like the start of a new
world until

boom, it appears, and
we’re here, this tiny world
with not enough space
to space out

as they float on bars
sit on each other
sink the land
into the water
