joyful

the bells rung
they swung to and fro,
leaping from note to note
with a robustness
strange for such heavy metal.
the sounds bounded through the town
and announced the occasion of
a great fall.

left

we had to go
or rather it was demanded by our bodies, screaming.
i wish we could’ve left our hearts there on the hearth.
instead we’re sent off to fight another battle.
i am often confused about where my home is.

smiled

they smiled together
like their lips were sealed with the same wax
and sighed together as if their lungs
were blown by the same wind.
yet they sailed in different directions
and the horizon was so far away.

heartfelt

it was all very heartfelt.
she cried all over everyone.
even i teared up seeing her shiny face.
i could see him flinching in the coffin.
it would all be over soon.
we’d stop beating around this bush.
she threw on the first pile of dirt rather
enthusiastically.

dusk

they rose from the waters
with strings of grass hanging over their dead eyes,
all that remained of their morning years.
the dusk now lidded the sockets and blinked them in
stead rhythm.
you will rise and fall each day
until the sun consumes this earth.

possible

you can do it.
lift that weight
follow that path
you can do it.

you tell me what i’m possible of
and that’s not right.
sometimes i can’t do it.
but that doesn’t mean i’m not the best i can be.
i will find myself one day
and look back at you.

sterile

the needle bites deep
and reaches into those memories even i couldn’t get to.
your familiar face surfaces to the top of my brain.
you look so young
so you.
i know this face.
it’s so familiar.
except it’s too perfect.
this is art’s best rendition of you.
this isn’t you.

commission

they’re running out he said.
call california he said.
california’s out he said.
california’s down he added.
then let’s all pray to god they said.
one minute: standing.
one minute: kneeling.
hands clasped.
one minute: laying down.

level

keep going!
one more level up.
then we’re there. and no longer here.
we’ll be free.
keep going!
i stop feeling your hand in mine,
it’s more like we’re floating through the ceiling.
one more level up.

analytical

they were analysts.
they questioned everything except for their superiors.
they ignored the shrinking number of employees.
they tallied up the costs and benefits.
they stayed because it was risky to leave.
I don’t recommend that sir.
The bullet was silent as it bit through the air.

strike

STRIKE THE F1 KEY
okay…
STRIKE THE F1 KEYYYY
OKAY!
BEEP BEEEP BEEEEEP
oh my god.
they tell you what to do
and it all comes down
to simple acts of violence.
it was struck for reasons.

collapse

let’s just let it go
and do that shrink and pop.
i’m not scared of the black hole.
i’m more worried about what it’ll make us do.
don’t let it change you.
let it go to shit.
but not you.
not you.

still

it hangs there still.
the wind is very listless.
the eyes have long gone
but i still stare whenever i pass by.
i wonder if the soul is still suspended there with the owner,
draped on the old tree.

single

a single tear.
yes.
just one.
it leaks very realistically out of her eye.
her eye.
yes, it’s always her eye.
whichever one.
it depends on whichever side is her good side.
women always have good sides.
it’s always good vs. bad.

stairway

the way is dark
and i’m uncertain whether the next step is solid marble
or just black black void.
the world doesn’t have to be a
cold dark place.
they whisper gaily in your ear.
but it is.
but it is.
i believe my next step.

declined

i’m sorry.
your stomach grumbles.
i’m sorry
it’s been a long day,
can we not argue?
you stomach grumbles.
apologizing can only fill you up
so much
before you feel them hit the sides of your emptiness.

no thank you.

church

the tiles were dusty from the feet of the pious.
outside a small noise erupted on a cold night.
inside our hearts fluttered in the hands
of an ambiguous god.
we did not know what was about to happen.

overt

let’s keep this between us.
let’s let it hang.
long and awkward and not
quite the right amount of space.
It dangles and the bucket
wobbles again.
i am in danger of letting you have this one.
but i will have myself.
take your fucking rope.

interested

check this box
or not.
maybe recycle that then.
it’s up to you.
hi can i talk to you?
do you have some time to complete this survey?
yes.
no.
i’m on my way to…
i don’t have time for you.
you are not worth my time.
sometimes there are dial tones at the end of my sentences.

motivated

let’s peer into each others’ skulls
and marvel at the goings on.
it’s like a zoo in here.
sometimes the monkeys make us uncomfortable.
like the whites of some horses’ eyes.
too human.
but we keep looking.

repressed

it wasn’t good.
he didn’t do as he was told.
he wasn’t a man like they wanted.
up the battle, climb that hill.
can’t escape these expectations,
can you?
battered, repressed.
done with this shit.

avoided

the closures led them down a muddy road.
a small herd of cows was basking in brown glory.
they couldn’t budge the animals.
so instead they joined them.
it was a good day,
a good rainy day that wasn’t supposed to turn out this way.

forefront

they ran
until the trippers were tripped.
her shoe had a hole.
jokes about holy souls fall on flat feet.
we cannot keep up.
we stop for a second and see the galaxy grow
around us.
stop.

personality

it was just so old.
the tree swayed softly, light on its feet
the way fat cats aren’t supposed to be.
but it was still a tree.
the roots still ran deep.
it still couldn’t run away from the bad things.
it had personality and fear like we all do.

swimmer

she wasn’t a strong swimmer.
they called out to her though,
and she was a good listener.
just a little farther.
you can see the shore line still.
just a little farther.
you can see still.
just a little farther.
the sun shines through the water.

dealer

the tires
squeaked clean
across the zig zaggity road.
her mother sighed
as the rubber left tracks on the perfect
porcelain kitchen.
she did not care.
because they are kids.

terrain

they walked the earth together
and saw the tracks
where the old seeds had risen and fallen.
Rome, they said. Nodded.
Aztecs. Yep.
United States. Check.
this land was done, it would be put out
for fallow.

deranged

they were done.
banging on the rails all day and night.
we’ll unite this land, they said.
cigars loosely dangle,
ashes of thin bodies trickle down.
good thing the carpet is dark.
clank clank, until the sun rises on
a new graveyard,
shiny gray steel.

stubborn

the cracks were starting to get beyond a little dry wall.
her hits were thudding from across the hall.
the other sister sat with her back against it
and felt the harsh beat of life.
this was it
this was what she was missing.

grandfather

the wind blew like a sigh
through the windows.
an old bellows from a long
dead fire.
we look at the plants together
and talk air about how they’ll one day
be taller than either of us.
We are both 5 feet.
the leaves have started to curl at the edges.
