Literature
03
I have been hunched over so long that when I straighten out my spine protests,
Refuses to let me bend or arch into a lovers embrace or stretch my head up
To watch the moon rise amongst the stars, or shift into bhujangasana
Sometimes I forget how tall I am, so when I pop my back and look back down
I grow dizzy from the realization that I am almost ten feet off the ground most days
But on my bad days, when I am curled into a ball so tight that I may form a condensed star,
The pain causing me to do so settles somewhere in my middle where it resides for only an hour
Before slipping away come night fall, and I am able to unfurl quietly each of my six arms
From around my waist and lay them out to dry as I recall how to breathe deep and ohm

02
I sometimes dream of drownings, and think 'this is my suicide'
A death in which I would be most successful, for I fear not the water,
Nor the curtain of long grass that would hide me from sight.
But the one thing I do dread: being locked away underground, a worm's meal,
With a heavy headstone to delay my return, forced to lie still for all eternity.
If I could whisper to Death the end I prefer I would speak of rivers overused
By teenage youths that pine for a romantic end, gasping and shivering in shock
When they'd forgotten that winter waters held them too tightly for comfort.
I would implore about manmade lakes that hold secrets like missing persons, wrapped
Neatly into black plastic and sunken, like buried treasure, to a muddy tomb.
I would ache to be dragged down into blackness by hands of steel, held softly
By the bubbles that escape my lips and play along my eyelashes, and then drip upward
Toward the light that burns me so, where they will pop and release my last words.
My body,

Sometimes my mouth is too heavy for words
And the mere thought of speaking or thinking in
An oral language has me on the verge of falling asleep
Amongst clean smelling foliage that won't judge me for
The scars on my wrist or the blood on my tongue.
This will be the place where I can be away from sorrow,
From prying hands a place where I can reset myself
To become the person lurking inside who yearns to be
Aware of how small we are in this world, how terrifyingly
Alone we can become when stop to realize that what
Haunts us the most is the sound of knuckles on a door or
The pattern of footsteps leading right up to your soul.
And this is where my heart starts and the small peace I had
Created is smashed by voices I have grown to hate, by a
Constant need to make small-talk, by bringing me things to
Try and win me over, but it's too late. I am busy trying to heal
When the blade of persistence shoots me in the heart chakra,
The one place I still have to myself, the constant reminder of how

Literature
This misery will suffice
It's bright red and flows like the River Ob,
the mesh of what was once dry and clotted
throbs as new blood enters its
water logged memory of
painful beats, which now beat with pleasure,
welcoming with weary smiles and wrists for rent,
the newborn weeps never-ending tears of nostalgia
once he finds out that this should only be a test
My friend Shane once told me that
collaborating with cold hearts chronically leads to candy

Literature
apoc in prog
I often wish
for some
sort of apocalypse
so I could just stop with this
constant non-
sense drop
pretense and
get on with it
abandon
the hollowed out
home
where I stay
this shell has been
empty
so long
anyway
and I sleep
but I get
no rest
with the weight
of these words
and the world
on my chest
but if it's
gone
so am I
getting started on this
two day
drive so
we can share
breath
the shape of my
heart
is this map
with an X
the place where you are
the space I fill next
or maybe
love
just depends
on the chances
we take before
our world
ends

no earthly good
dullish drudgery
