I had a jar of sunlight

when I woke this morning

that filled my room

spilled over the windowsill

drenched the roof and dripped down sweetly

streamed through the grass and soaked into the ground

and dyed the world bright gold

so I reeled down the stairs, drunk on glitterandshine,

hands wrapped around my jar of sunlight to keep warm

I was seeing sun in you, and

liquid gold

was pouring from my hands

then you with your little box

of hate

smooth black cold candy

in a silver tin

it was like ice going down

and bitter

and I didn't want to open my mouth

but I trust you

i'm sick now

don't please give me anymore


because I've had too much and

I dropped the jar it's broken-

Just blood and shattered glass

In a pool of gold and vomit
