Red Lips Sink Ships

Red Lips Sink Ships

have you searched for a hidden meaning?
a method behind the sadness?
leaves still fall,
stars still shine,
water still finds the lowest low.
where’s your money? I can see your mouth is closed.

something on the surface is not like the other –
but does it really matter at all?
you’ve come with your preconceived notions,
nothing persuades a made mind.
teaching a new dog new licks; a few clicks.
the dents in my wall are not from my heels, but another’s.
freshly painted.
new sheets.

have you searched for a hidden meaning?
water still finds the lowest low.
it’s hotter at the bottom.
convinced?
