Be Good - from "Traces to nowhere," episode one

Sometimes I get so flushed,
squeezed by the decision
of a dark red bloodstain
on a faded blue work shirt.
Do your palms ever itch?
There was something I
didn't like about her,
obsessively confused,
the perfect folds of
a dirty fear.
Bang shut the forehead,
a hand benignly cleaning
the moment, used morning.
Come by, sit here;
hear me say
I'm gonna be good.
