the light
in your
smile

is my 
favorite
constellation

you
haven’t
heard yet
what 
the sky says about
you 

that at 
even
first sight
how blinding

and
how she drew
a map to
where
you kissed
into the earth
like glass

green hiding
underneath
a field of
sand

and thanked
god 
that
the ocean
with her impatient
hands

couldn’t
dare
keep you
a
secret

grew the
daisies in the
median
so they
couldn’t
take
anything but
blurry
pictures

it was grey
on the insides
of my eyes

even
looking out
through the
lids
threaded with
veins and
filled with
blood

come lay with me
in this field of night
eating up into
a bowl of cosmic
dust

head in the long grass
hair full of ticks
mouth full of spiders
hands full of earth

heart full of 
almosts
but still
full

looking up
at all the
light we could
have been

reason turning
against want
overriding painful
observation
that
i feel where you should be
but somehow too
where you are not

nothing like
the not
knowing

except maybe
the 
finding out

i want to
unwrap all
of you with
these hands
blend you together
like sugar
whipped
in with butter
spilling out
where i
can
taste you
melting
hard candy
popped
into a hot mouth

i miss you with 
a face i don’t 
know

with a voice i
can’t 
recognize

sometimes i worry that
it’s too much
what i’ve got for you
all this
love and love and
shit

i worry
that the universe
is catching up
that someday
it’ll cut through
all our golden

i worry
that somehow
it will take back
what i don’t think
i deserve

giving them the right to their own distractions
the right to whatever helps them close those eyes

everything
has been
stripped 
down torn
out cracked
open
caught 
drawn and
shot
towards
building
this
love

we’re
holding on 
to what we
can
use
and burning
what
we can’t

i’ve been 
sorting through
our days and
there’s
nothing i can
find 
that could
ever
keep us
apart

(take me
yours in
the night fog
underneath
the moon
while the
trees are
still alive)
