Make Nice

your way
around the
heavy corner
make nice
make a
gambling addict
out of a friend
and abandon him
in his most
feverish moment
in a town not
of his choosing
to stare at the
ceiling splayed expanse
the crumbs
the network of decay
the building
falling down all around
face hot red
red hot heated
sweat moves like a sheet
tugged slow
shifts lifts over
the edges of life gnawed on
made jagged
say one thing
mean another to
your friend
by your actions let
the existence of
is within close proximity
inevitable envy ensues
snuffs the fire
and curls the lips
