how to burn previous

if you saw
clouds behind
stars in your eyes
you would never have
blinked away infinity’s offer.

unrolling
without unwinding
or untangling. opening
where closure creeps out
and you extend long greedy

fingers
stuck of guilt. sticking
to your sweaty body. running
to another low. skip the next step:
forget another set of keys. turn back.

return.

“We will be beautiful…”
