dislodged

babe
i’m holding out
to die at the right time

but nixing it badly
every day|on the hour
been wondering

how does magic
become a tragic
smile i dream?

been rehashing
poisoned|passion
cuz there’s something

precious about this
untwist
outside my door

  1. Oh my! Hozier is <3. I'm in love with this man and his songs.
    And this line:

    how does magic
    become a tragic
    smile i dream?

    ooh… </3

  2. how does magic
    become a tragic
    smile i dream?

    Now there is a good question.

  3. I love this. This is a life-turns-on-a-dime question if I ever heard one:
    “how does magic
    become a tragic
    smile i dream?”

  4. Very intriguing. I actually considered using Hozier’s lyrics …..so glad I left it to you! This really packs a punch.

  5. Sounds like no one is getting this quite right, Angie. I love a line by Joan Didion that the last line must open a whole new story. I think that’s the case with this poem.
