Dangling Participles is a painting by Richy Sharshan

I’m half in,
always a possibility.

What will cleanse me
of filthy thoughts of you
reaching like fingertips
flushed with oils,
midnight baths
in madness?

Droopy years,
gravity sinks into me
like the rocks,
the collapsed stars.
Immunity comes
only in the spiraling
of your eyes.

Sure, I will slip first,
abandon my point
in time and space,
having never really
to being here
in the first place.
