One day it will come to me

when I walk into the room

it will come to me one day

where I lay my head

it will greet me with a stranger’s grin

or hold me close

envelop me

like a fist inside black leather

it will swallow me like a whale

one day

and laugh like an old sea captain

one day it will beckon me

like a witch in a fairy tale

it will touch my cheek

with an ice cube

it will not whisper or bring daisies

and it will not sing my praises

inside the bone it sleeps

like heroin

one day it will knock

like a policeman at my door

my life will come to me

one day

and ask me where I’ve been.
