Eternal fall

She waters the dead thing

when I talk about how I’m feeling

pretty ugly inside about the whole scenario –

how it happened

how it didn’t

how it could’ve if we had just known

how it happened and didn’t,

and she says that it will just take some time

to heal and to grow again

but the plant is unkind

to the liquid and soil that overflows,

though she doesn’t notice


My mouth wakes

to dirt and plaque and words

about how last night was great

and dirty and I liked how

you did that thing with your thing

and my mouth closes to sleep

and my eyes yawn open

while I kiss her

and she says something

through the metal of her tongue

and the red of cracked lips

that will bruise later on

from that thing

that she is happy

to have found me

and I say nothing because

I am tongue tied

  2. Naw, you’re not tongue tied… kissing like that… and as for words? you just save those up for your poems.

    i kinda like it… the way you lie.

    • lay down like a dog, maybe. matters the night.

      • no, dogs at this point, would be too easy of a reference for my tastes… everybody is doing it.

        but the laying lying duality you cued up on is astute.

        Matters the drink, boy-o. never the night.

      • Maybe less drink and a real friend. But ok, whatever you do be you, poet. You’re god like Tabby said. I agree your honesty is interesting.

      • I meant good not god. You are not god. Tabby never said god, but this cracks me up… anyhow.

      • i don’t mind being a good god; those seem out of stock recently. tabby is god, though. good too. always keeps me in check.

      • awww…you two are cuties. Yes, Tabby has had that effect more than occasionally.

        cool beans.
