2 erasures

spurt (n.)

The best idea
is a spurt,

enough to consume
clouds
large and swift.

to believe (v.) 

Believe in the fallen,
insulated against
the whirlpool  
of belonging.

Green Room

A break-up is like
Death pacing up and down
in the green room,
his penultimate
appearance
before the curtain
closes.
