She wears her hair the way she thinks
the sound her breath
emits the stars,
my floating vessel,
ajar under ceiling stains.
I’ve slipped away in smiles,
she glides my helpless nothing.
In her velvet I purr.
You found me after the bombs stopped.
Open wounds, lollipops,
crashed cars, holy walls,
the creaks from every corner of every room that warm my depths
in your house
is my everything.
Tell me dear,
will you wander with me a while?
Landfills of feverish outcasts, fit only for friends of the fallen.
The tallest is the ladder, it seems only right.
Children climb first, and arrange towards the morning warmth.
“Run my friends,” as the tall man turns back, “they’ve returned.”
Layered mechanical horizons, metal sheets ejected into the crevice, mother’s voice
under the steel placements, “God help us.”
a second interjecting, “At least now I can get some sleep.”
The tall man’s torso faces the rising sun, his legs splay across an orphan’s lifeless frame.
The hole began to spin violently.
The torso disintegrates.
The spinning ceases.
A boy and a girl stand over where they once resided.
Gigantic magnets lift for the reveal.
A stew of flesh, bones, and entrails float carelessly.
A man approaches.
Clean shaven, wearing dark. A proper suit, not a single mark.
He stares, his hand strengthening the brain in his chin,
His eyes rose to the children, “dispose of this.”
The young ones close their eyes,
and destroy the evidence,
embrace the forgetting.
It is mine.
I have nurtured it forever, where years speak like seconds.
It shines ominously as I caress its wondrous skin.
Protecting an orb of yes, of do not lose it.
They took it from me when I was awake.
They set it in a glass case at the foot of my bed when I slept.
It is mine.
I stare at it through the pain. Polish applied every other day.
Light at certain angles shows the future,
but the dimness is understandable in such an enclosure.
Baseball bats only shower splinters.
Power drills weep like the fighting breath of dying animals.
My fists bleed for hours after the attempt.
The box is angry that I want it back.
It is not mine.
The substance of nothing
is nothing of substance.
A warehouse of souls transmits through their
Does the body choose?
Does the soul choose the body?
We forced car accidents to test the rigidity of sorrow,
a poor performance.
The numbers cowered in the corners, a union of fear
from the timely tyrant.
It smooths to be sharp. Swallowing regurgitation. Running in mirrors from outside,
We must hide.
Stuffing the clouds for us. I present to you,
the lovely reader,
a deafening sound with a shriek on the side.
Hold the climax.
Joint custody of pleasurable perils. The night watchman dances around the fire.
A pit of gripping fingertips boil over with popping cyst money hits.
My whites are drying on the clothesline outside.
The rain started hours ago.

these piney paths I roam.
You show no solace, you beast, you foe. The night drags like a carcass behind this three-wheeled wagon, and I will guide it, my eyelids pinned to my cheeks and forehead. I will not yield, for you have not. I will not rest until you expose yourself from the shadows.
She breaths so softly. The air like whispers from a world banishing me. I long to be there, to touch the chaos of slumber, the madness of my own mind.
She breaths so softly when she sleeps. Her lips sit open, playing with the wind, like the horizon dancing with the pink, urging the clouds to caress its shores.
So softly, so sound, her movements are still. Her beauty is in her peace, and her breath, her sleeping breath.
I will watch you from this lonely boat, rocking, a nuisance, the smacking water louder than a landslide breaking through a cabin door, tearing the room apart, leaving nothing but the residue of a place pieced together by the fragments of what should be.
I will stay in the static,
you wandering bastard.
