Jail by Ian Ian O'Phelan

Please forget to remind me of sex

Please forget to remind me of sex
And the dirty illegal moves I used to remember
As yours

Please try and push them away
Out of my newly flat days
When Mondays form out of the same minutes
Last week used

Please tell me to give up
Because even after the arrest
I’ll still try and rekindle
The saving that’s there

Please don’t make a lesson out of me
I’d do what most people do
If I could
I’m not trying to save the world anymore
Just a few blocks

Please feel free to contact me
When I’m dealing with winter
So the frost along my nails
Will be filed down for visitors

Please lose track of time
Because it’s damning anyone
Who doesn’t

Please write
I won’t find your hands if you type

Please grasp that a lot of what you know
About me
Isn’t going to survive
But I’ll try my best to keep at
Whatever you fell in love with

I’ll see you soon
If not within the platitudes

Nearly taken in by the po-po for climbing a telephone pole for an impromptu photoshoot outside of Sugarland at sometime around 4 in the morning.
