Fleeting things like friendship

I can’t get it out of my head today

you

and you keep talking

you

and you keep spilling

poison so easily pulled

from plump, pink lips

Like a snake

it slithers

dry scales

sliding in and out

of my mind

as memories flood back

of kindness I once knew

corrupted by cobras

venomous and vile

they poison

and consume

fragile, fleeting things

like friendship

broken by

bitter bile
