Fly

I sing off-kilter love songs
To a photo I now call your smile,

I fill the bin with lyrics
And fritter longing
Like spitting bacon
Under a grill,

Gently dramatic,

Feeling like the wars of the sinister
Have curdled the innocent,

But I’m just a fly,

A buzz in the corner of a room
Pretending to be part of a picture,

Looking down
At a past happy,

Waiting for windows
To open.
