The Distant Present Tense
by Kelly Rice

Press down hard on me
On my spineless backbone 
Starched and hollow 

Invest all you've got now dear cuz-
Im in too deep-I'm in too far now

Sinking weightless in depths-
where no one is longing
where no-one is ensuring

(There's nothing to lose)

And its about this time now-around this time now-I go swirling in reverse-
Chasing the distant present tense

absolute / obsolete / absences

I found someone to love and I pressed against his torso-
He went down on the floor-I went with him
