you said it was only on the surface
but it's the same below
our world had a short time, heaven knows
it's littered and smells of smoke

we dared not stare too long as we spoke
for fear of sparking...

The Hardwood Ghost

We turned into strange things, barely moving.
And I looked up at what was coming down:
embers settling finely into the top of my skull,
and there is no shelter.

I am in a flow, I inherit every...

Hemispheres (revised)

Open blinds, lines of light;
the smoke moves through them.
It's summer, somewhere; Australia, I think.
Won't they mail me something green?

Because I live in the most frigid hemisphere.

Of course I...

what's a friday night for?
to let it out of clouded heads
crystal formations hang in them, and ring
and we'll sing our lives out of key

and there's dust in here
simple little particles, they hold...

i see all your pictures and i check my phone
does this feel like indifference?
i lie to myself, though
i don't want to care, i want us to go down in smoke
but it's going to have to be for real

slow down, you're tripping over
my clothes, wading through the
smoke clouds, the battles over and
i won, the naked truth hurts
outside, you run even though it's
as cold as a skeleton's ghost

Afterlives (third attempt)

how far will we go?
stowaways without a boat
our shoes cut through concrete waves
sails held taught by shoelace
and the others won't even see us
we are just bodies roaming streets
bone under flesh...

growth handheld by spirits
an arrow through time, hardly off the bow
every grave only a relic

i looked, and the biggest reassurance of my existence

isn't it endlessly sad?
that only someone who knew me so well

since then, i've rolled up my sweater sleeves less often
some terrible truths have become my friends
i smoke less, because inside the house can't smell like that
and i'm living with it

Ghosts in the Concrete

I believe city benches have their own memories.
Like if it all was connected to our minds.
Car blinkers would never lie,
receipts would never be hard to find,
and whatever love is will be forced to...

How I Avoided Losing My Mind

You wanted to know where things were going.
Not far, it turns out.
We both came to say that we should just stop,
and the abandonment began.

It all fell out the back of my head,
a giant cube of...

Finely Settled

In time I was mended by a thicker patchwork.
But you reappeared, descended on fleeting things;
things as tiny, frail, and bone-deep
as when they first pulled you down to me.
And you are at once as...

Crying shame.
Just bloom out of this rancid casing.

Dim light shows my eventual destination,
but it seems to make my stomach into a dumpster.
And I feel a dump truck turning it over, empty.

The Mostly Honored Dead

Weeknights in short sleeve shirts.
My stool edges further from the bar
as my legs kick for their last breath, I'm strangling it.

Creep out in the heat, half a ghost,
and the spirits I pass are so...

Serial wreckage;
a progression of sorry tales
told by me, to me.
I remember it all so very clearly,
so why the recounts?

And oh god now it's starting fresh;
another girl to creep over the pictures...

Seriously, what stupidity.
Microwaves and ovens don't clean themselves.
I should know, I never eat.

Honestly, leave me to my crusty heartaches.
The wrestlers on TV mimic the dramas inside me:

Friendzone Safari

What tired breath.
Grab the line fastened through the forest,
hold tight and find your way.
But for us, it's tied in circles.

Holy hell is this a drag,
to be caught in heaven long enough to see

Yes the name is from the Happy Happy Joy Joy song.

all our endeavors
of you and me saying whatever
never go anywhere
so stop leading me on
because i only walk where i can't see
