Vanishing Point

VP is boxing smart
VP is shadowboxing, start
VP is docking in person
Smtms u’r just a version

VP is speaking your heart
VP is speaking without
word art
VP is bearing
burdensome tension
Smtms we cnt hlp our
inversion
VP is not an erasure
VP isn’t pressure’s
texture
VP is survival speak
Smtms naming names
lives leak
As I’m about to sit I know
