From “A thrift store paints a shelf”

In four years I’ll be a hundred years old
The trees will be leafless
The sun will be warmer
The stars will taste of rot
Blueberry pies will fly
Wildly across your closet
Back and forth Complete chaos
You will miss holes in your sweaters and every little thing
You will catch me at night
Throwing rusty nets in the dark
Trapping nightmares
To the underground
