Saturdays

I cling to Saturdays
In fear of it passing by
Like a kid savouring candy —
Returning half to wrapper
Tucking it in the pocket to melt

Double standard

Your ray pains their eyes
They’ll scorn at any flicker
Yet coddle the dark

What you love

Exit the parade
What you love will bare themselves
Amid what remains
