Bone

In two minuets

            loud bread
                     could hear
                        the hallway maybe
                        it was
                                      3 minuets
                        to the bone of
                          a hot
                                bath
                        or shower
                          of colors
                                pressing
                                  out
                                    a door

                          they kissed again

                                     the warm water
                                     the box spring
                                          the free
                                            terrifying white
                                                     papers

                                                   the voice
                                                            always
                                                 secrets it away
                                                            she said
