Yards Of Paint
(by Jesse Payne)

Driveways tear unconscious walls
the fence will sharply sway
unstable yards of paint
my clockwise spring

Was narrowed by the muzzle’s fit
the fractions of a breeze
branches holding leaves
with unswept breath

The doctor said don’t reset the screen
it becomes general you know

Campaigns bear on skinned up knees
these military halls
ration out our thoughts
with retro-film

Like mountains under snow
the pines will come and go
Where the ocean meets the old

The doctor said don’t reset the screen
it becomes general you know

I want you to grow as if your still
the doctor says it becomes general

The doctor said, “ I want you to grow”
“it becomes general, you know”
