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...

Afterlives (revised)

i've become so fluent in my dreams
i think the waking life has forgotten me
the things i promised with open eyes
i break in sleeping

somehow i feel it like it's real
like there are others who can...

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

already out of focus, and even then blurred by...

i remember when you responded
i looked, and the biggest reassurance of my existence
enveloped me

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

In Which I Forget My Luggage

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...

it will slip through the fabric
of the pockets in my jeans
a lifeline of a hundred keepsakes
couldn't keep you tied to me

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.

I will...

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

A Fly Marrying A Bumblebee

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

you know me

A Constant

I misbehaved.
Two years discounted, sold for half a song,
and now I'm floating in a bar tab through life.

It seemed so damaging,
like every lie was a hole in a white sheet.
But it's a truth that...

You were saying how your father was;
that he didn't even know how to talk to you,
your relationship barely as deep as skin, no matter how you'd pretend.
And I thought I must have reminded you so much...

Watching an Ecosystem

A halt in living;
the march stops in the ankle deep.
I set about mending and now I'm paused in disrepair.
Some paper fable led me here.

It's already happening:
trees breath carbon-dioxide easy,

More Than a Year Away

A loose laundry line hangs down to the bottom floor.
It's a string of Christmas lights, illuminating damp pants and shorts.
Inside, a single note floats frozen,
suspended rigid over hardwood.

The Start of Something Separated and Beautiful

Panes looking up at the sky;
frames are miles, miles wide.
Who told them all, how did they know?
A suspicion, a widespread one;
is there a best way to put it?
I'm just swatting at flies and taking...

The High and Low (revised, final)

The weight is set.
Sterile steps leave a blameless trail.
Oh, if I were to lose my footing!
In for a haul a ways out there, out there.

We are two half-lifes
and we are eroding ourselves;
how long...

More rehashed material! I think it's improving, though.

Morning light through vertical blinds,
and covers swept aside:
I've been reaching again.

Some dreams know me better than I'd like.

and covers swept aside:
I've been reaching again.
Desperate leaps through life,
divided by nights.

And for the longest time I saw it all so fine.

On Top of the Green Tea

Whatever cinders float,
my mind is captive.
There was a place for your chin and mine atop,
we looked into each others eye across;
we talked plain, but the subtext made my neck numb,
and I was dizzy...
