Arrest Statement - for Timothh Thornton

Yes officer I am not resisting
just that I would

the sign was at head height
to tell me not to stand
I rose to it to see it

cut me down and I am all
under arrest. So stop.
That's an option too

perhaps disproportionate
but something to think
& mark my words

down into you every time
they cut you they cut me
we're different kinds of a mess

but a mess

I made one with my sister
in rapture
on purpose & because of trouble

it made our glee
we met there. & I have your key
and it's shit.

Not your key but that I have it
that I've singularised some guilt there.

But here, I almost always
think of you.
