disappearing frown

you know that sadness
falls or floats
like a rubber ducky
staring you down
and announcing
he will live, indebted to none.

eye the filling,
cherries that push
a favorite graham cracker crust
to the finishing line
though blue porcelain
remains in cabinets
that rattle of complacency.

petals continue an awkward debate
uneven, all leaves barely cutting.
