Homeless (revised)

the world's always been apart from you and me.
we've always lived in a menagerie.
beyond this zoo, it's only extrasensory: alive, away.
drive and drive, chase it; it will stay so far beyond our...

I also like "the smell of your words." Sincerity spoken intimately, nose to nose when the relationship was good, and lies spoken in the same way in the second stanza when it went bad. Very simple and...

Stay Shut

Last night I had my old backpack.
The one with the faulty zipper.
You came for a visit just then,
an unwelcome, beautiful whisper.

I like to think I knew you,
not just the drives and the railways...

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...

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?

some terrible truths have become my friends
i smoke less, because inside the house can't smell like that

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...
