    I sacrifice much of myself for the sake of myself
    I don’t want the things I want
    I’m afraid of things that hold any meaning
    like a shadow in an empty room
    or reflections of wind in the trees

  • Katie C. commented on the post, pressed 8 years ago

    I pressed each letter onto the paper
    with a delicate turn of the handle
    and watched as the bee flew again
    and again into the window screen
    trying ever harder to escape the place
    that is all too familiar to you and I

    Secretaries are extinct
    are politically incorrect
    are called admins now
    I feel so sorry for their glasses
    kept on tiny chains close
    to their tiny pockets
    which are normally filled
    with pens

    The way it feels on my
    palms is exactly how the sky feels
    as the clouds pass under it

    When I move toward California you say:
    The air is bright today.
    When you walk toward the coast I say:
    I was sure there was nothing left.

    White fish and Joseph Ceravolo
    Marathons and brick buildings
    Falling trees and drawing breath
    I am and whatever is next

    I have managed to find you under this mass of poems
    but have you managed to find the heart of them all?

  • Katie C. commented on the post, boiling 8 years, 2 months ago

    I can only think of water
    rising and possibly the way
    hot asphalt smells after
    it rains or
    the way air has become tense
    this summer

    I took the route home and back.
    The sun was bright and forgetful
    the air
    was equally so.

  • Katie C. commented on the post, amuse 8 years, 2 months ago

    I would like you to amuse me
    in a way that is transcendent
    of big words and sparrows which fly in the evening
    as the sun is just barely deciding to set
    and the grasses end their dances with the breeze.
