five
hundred miles
away
yet
your face rests
heavy
in my head

he sold you
back
your
dead flowers
and you paid 
him
with your
eyes

it’s happiness 
awake and
smiling
every day
since
i found you

clear
night 
painted to trail
along after
day
bled into smile
bled into wait
bled into oh my i’ve
missed you
so

and
right
now we are good
we are
together

let’s never 
leave this house 
where
we
are all
okay

baby 
starling
hasn’t heard

what to
keep in the
mouth

(or out of it)

can’t
keep those
feathers 
clean for
nobody

still
doesn’t know how to 
fold
her legs

i am in this for 
every side 
and
every angle
i am in
this
for
every part of
you

unchained 
eighteens rolling
out over
gardens 
braiding hands
kissing scabs
and
crawling back with
grass in their
teeth

you’re an eleven
minute 
instrumental
and yes i’m
listening to you
till i get tired

i’m planning on
keeping you till i’m
over your shit
(yes i am yours till
don’t know when)

i just can’t
bring myself
to crown anything
other
than these midday
saturn sunscapes
around that 
beau-ti-ful mind
yes
he is  
my
fav-o-rite
five-starred 
four-eyes

and i bet
he’d leave kisses like
rotten tomatoes yeah
I bet no one grew up
in the same way
and i want him
how summer wants
fruit without seeds
and weather on whatever
days
i think maybe for
you
me— i think
we’re tied in knots
phonetically 

when i get back awake
i’m planning

to scrape your
vinyl with my 
teeth i wanna
eat the skin off
both your knees
i wanna see you crawl on
hot coals
babe
i want you
in my
room with
both arms

because
the world’s
only getting more
terrifying 
out there 
it’s getting fucked
up crazy
but i’ve already hacked
myself to pieces
with just the thought of
my thumbs
in your
hair

and i’ll write to you right
eventually i’ll be
sitting with a hand
in mine
but right now we’re
hot glass cats
patiently setting
so
our song is
whatever
you’re
singing tonight

the only
thing
i
ask of
my days
is that
they begin
and
end with
you







« »

— July 20, 2014 —

dizzy with the
thought
of
breathing 
promises 
warm against
your neck

sick with
wishing i
was
wrapped around
you







« »

she and i
had a world
in the crawl
space
where
wasps got in
and built
their nests in the
summers
and somehow
we never hit our
heads on the
ceiling
running out
as if time
couldn’t touch us
there

— July 18, 2014 —

you
lit a bonfire
in my
chest house full
of fireworks
and my
my 
heart
cracked in three
places
bled out white light
and spat
glitter
at the moon

it’ll be quick
honey
five times
i said it
five times
to me soft like how
you’d lie
to strangers

it’d be just
like a dead
bat
falling 
in the dark

the earth
swallowing it up
by 
morning

his head is
slipping
and it’s
something
to watch

how he moves
or doesn’t move
or can’t recall
and it

makes me
wonder
when i might 
fall out

i get to asking
when will i
forget
you
