“a young person’s guide to pressboarding” by Letson Williams

do your best to keep an open mind

stretch it out for weeks at a time

then    make the same mistakes your entire life

but if it should happen to break tonight

if it should happen to break    like    like

i mean just go ahead and

blink twice  if you hear it    or feel it

till you know that it’s right

or at least until you’re sure that she might

a waterfall bend

be here tomorrow to do it again

the best was worn against my neck

it was built on sand    what did you expect

the lies that bring the many smiles

wouldn’t burn   given time

you’d think we’d learn

maybe        right?

take one step closer to the light

that extra step   will loose the tight

but don’t question fear   it could be right

evo   lution       that is why

something is riding on this

but you   don’t know what it is

do you

skin-and-bones?

the next kiss

just don’t tell the kids

looking back

not sure why i did

a novella about pride in yourself

bringing it one step closer to health

proving for once that right    is a time

is it leaped or leapt    you decide

each step       one closer to

                                                                               what  i’ll

 find
