dismantled. the heart, receding below,
thrown over, quiet. slow &nearly deliberate. 
speeds up then slows back down. this ache,
purple, bruised upon my neck like

the month of October. you take, &declare/
&declare/ &declare/ &declare/ &declare/ &declare/
&articulate this slope of thought, convinced;
asymmetry conveying future.


maybe, wrong- this, one of
several. casual need(s), emptied of ____.
(to feel)supplant, abandon, shaken 
			        from two hands,

as always.

&nothing remains, &nor good enough. could be said
other way(s), toward; loss(ing), built within
)water and with light. (possibility_ but) not. of what 
discarded. brittle thoughts, abject absence
forced in repeatingly:

i am nothing i am nothing i am nothing
 i am nothing i am nothing i am nothing
  i am nothing i am nothing i am nothing
   i am nothing i am nothing i am nothing
    i am nothing i am nothing i am nothing
     i am nothing i am nothing i am nothing
      i am nothing i am nothing i am nothing
       i am nothing i am nothing i am nothing
        i am nothing i am nothing i am nothing
         i am nothing i am nothing i am nothing
          i am nothing i am nothing i am nothing
					           (-ness)

I think what's most successful about this is that the language feels very deft and smooth. It's felt much better than it's understood, which is good.

&nothing remains, &nor good enough. could be said

It does get a little shaky in these lines. "&nor good enough" sticks out to me, and the whole first line is syntactically harsh. I think it's worth tinkering there.
