life

i have lived this humanity humiliating with a good story of a bad story where there is too much and still not enough of that face i will give you when all the chips in the cupboards have been eaten after only two days or when you are going to leave me after a few … Continue reading

where’s where

still standing here where you left don’t you know how to find me   i am a soft pullover of yours i am the slippery sunlight in between the toes   there is a deep love under my armpit a bit of warmness glowing still where you spent an evening kissing the usually empty space … Continue reading

Simple

Dear dear, I began writing this last year. Many of the words were complicated then. They were ruined in my mouth. Blood dyed their ends. But all of this has been to write a few sentences, simply, assuredly, without the need to compile anymore at least for a day. Today, for example. So, after 365 … Continue reading

Ticks

Dear dear, I am not good at making friends. Most of the time, I make it only about it myself, about my faulty focus, about how I am doing this new thing, how I don’t want everyone to know but listen to all this unknown, how even now in this tumbling self-centered supposed selflessness, I … Continue reading

every everything

here again in the small stop of your loving i am reminded that this is a tiny end just before you kiss me   it will not happen yet there will be the happy years the faulty focused years where i catch myself in your thick warm arms or in the mirror smiling what can … Continue reading

how do i hold this hope of not fearing that one day you will find the happiness that i see in something beyond myself   is it constraint to want this thirst at my leg   is there freedom to be left among the rain   her thick warm soul then everything these holes that … Continue reading

baby

no body has ever given birth only a way to push away from the awkwardness in this conversation dull belly bending dumb into dusk birch trees peeling from your nails the birds outside singing in each office cubicle until they are burnt by the fire fifty years from now drowned in the flood 102 years … Continue reading
