And with my hair matted to the edges of my face
they detail processes they can't yet undertake.
But they will tentatively schedule some test
and it gets too hard to hear the rest.

There's things they can't identify (It's at once concrete)
to grant these symptoms a disease (and hallucinatory).
Things get abstract before they disappoint me.
Theories widening their eyes (It's at once concrete)
and then crumbling like a monarchy (and hallucinatory).
Things get abstract before they disappoint me.

And you send flowers, crisp and carefully arranged
that befit a relationship too young to bear this strain.
And various reasons for your absence are expressed
but it gets too hard to read the rest.

You will not pull these curtains closed (It's at once concrete)
with an air of finality (and hallucinatory).
Things will get abstract before they disappoint me.
But there was uncertainty before (It's at once concrete).
There's a job offer in D.C. (and hallucinatory).
Things get abstract before they disappoint me.

Threats sharpen to blades
omnipresent but sheathed
no one facilitates their release.

(It's at once concrete and hallucinatory)
Things get abstract before they disappoint me.

Every gift becomes a loan (It's at once concrete).
Every access point a breach (and hallucinatory).
Things get abstract before they disappoint me.

Things get abstract before they disappoint me.
