switched

they suddenly switched
they switched all of a sudden
suddenly is no longer a word
switches will now be sluggish
not as vainglorious
and definitely not confined to lights

protest

the joints once moved machinistic smoothness
now i consider the weary bone
a mastiff lies on the ground, whining eyes
we will soon put down this burden
and dream of liquid silver,
silken souls

badge

disrespect the badge
the blows glance off shields
lean into all four corners of the
feet, learn to ground
sometimes the heels will dig in
sometimes there will be necessary
resistance

deliberate

the cuts were very deliberate
pincers making papery art
of the green veins
held up to the light,
i believed in a god
the design and spontaneity were so real
tiny tiny carpenter
soul architect

tandem

a wafer of salt floats down
a golden eye glazes
in tandem, the aquatic lizards
dive
dive
delve into their element
with a grace i can’t seem to find in mine

will

she felt the triangle quiver on the curtain
there’s something wrapped inside that wad
it has no sharpness but weight
like a river stone swallowed in soup
i think it looks something like will

divinity

its very dark inside
the dust sits in straight lines
the pews
i hear a rustling and wonder
what’s behind these doors
a flash of light and thundering
hooves
they leave me

resting

standard procedure
eyes closed
hands crossed over heart
that way we protect what mummifies first
what’s hardest to see
the jellied orbs of sight,
the futile organ of life

she’s currently resting
laying in wait
don’t disturb her stasis
she resides somewhere between living
and destroying
that look in her eyes is easily
mistaken
do not break her gaze
do not break

leveled

yes i believe we’re gone now
a brief shadow of your eyebrow remains
ingrained
static grains
fizzle crackle and pop
i am almost gone now
nothing to wo

headband

a weird little thing
keeps the brains all together
or at least it groups those instruments
i think the notes go abcdefghz
there was something i was supposed to do
what is your name, young man?
who is you?
i am can do

a line of sweat crowns the new victorious
a strand of silk suddenly alerts you of nearby spiders
hair sticks to the temples of workers building the temples of gods
clouds encircle the newborn son

tribal

there were no fangs on leather thongs
no blood glinting on the blade
instead the dirt.
our fingernails became hardened shells but our faces still cracked during the rains

maestro

waves his feathered arms
he can’t fly any more but
godammit he can create
sweeping sound and piercing cry.
his tattered coat tails fan the vowels into place

speaking

of which, did you get that checked out yet?
looks kind of… infectious
there’s a speck of dust on my glasses and the xylophone won’t shut up
i’m terribly sorry but we’re out of all our fucks.
please take a number.
Hello, Mr. President?

complicated

i am a girl boy girl boy birl goy
it’s a little weird to talk
let’s just sit and pick flowers
if i blink with my left eye
you are there
with my right you sink into the grass
or it rises into you
i’m sorry, that was unpleasant.

embassy

it was a little complacent in there
and i wasn’t sure this was the place to be
but the eagle on the seal seemed reassuring
with it paternal wingspan and
glimmering talons.
i felt i could trust its steady gaze
and was soothed like a rabbit.

eleven

eleven hangs between us,
heavy and taut
a wet jacket has given up on my shoulder
we used to have twelve
but you stared too long at the sunset
and a bird got a gleam in its soul
i think we will have enough for soup when
we get home

a shard of plastic glisters in the sun
it is hot inside this car and i’m no longer a baby
the upholstery swelters in waves
in the distance, a gas station sign rises on stilts
the straight lines repeat over and over
but i see the staccato’s in pairs

transform

a cog rolled and hit the point of perfect
balance between flawed and unreal
i looked up at the pupa
and it looked down at me.
i felt extremely happy and apprehensive
for what the next line would bring

delirious

the wheat heads swayed in a haze
a summer storm’s afterthought was sweeping through the area
a farmer sighed into the wind
the eddies were delirious, drunk on hot air
and the shouts of men going to war.

sympathy

isn’t he a bit overfed?
engorged on the salt
from an ocean of someone else’s sorrow.
i can’t feel you, so no. i’m the one
that’s actually sorry.
i think there should be a card for when you stop crying

bicycle

turning turning
a little faster
and i think the plane of the page
and the palm of you face will
look in the same direction of a great white.
i’m sure there is some mechanism
but on days like this
i am days like this
over and over

gentleman

let’s not have a scene, eh?
i just cleaned the floor and jesus christ
gentle, eh?
i think the way a man walks
is fucking stupid.
and there is a speck on the floor that i’d rather be looking at.

visit

ing hours slip by
and i’m reminded of how slippery brains are.
i’ll get him flowers next time
and maybe a Hallmarked sentiment.
it’s a little hard to hold a conversation
with someone that isn’t in the same room.
i look down and then up

stitches

it was hard to count the stitches across the land,
the faults and lines all finally
gave in to the earth.
i think we will have a good year after
we recover.
at least we still have some seeds to sow.
the bleeding will stop soon,
i believe it.

greedy

it wasn’t their fingers or eyes
or pockets
or pockets under eyes.
it was just their syrupy desire
to stay on this rock a little longer that
was so relatable.
i’m afraid the court will
side with Death on this one.

locket

it was a hinge
that rested
and relied.
i wasn’t certain the physics would work out
but never doubt earth and nature,
i guess.
the crack when the shell shattered
was enough to make me lose my shit.
splatter.

gesture

it was swift
yet awkward in terms of
how joints fit in sockets
and holes are objects.
i think there was a meaning hidden there —
not tucked in a tree or folded in a pocket,
but growing deep, where the soil smell
is all there is and we are all bare
