maroon

I am wearing maroon. I sit in an office. I listen to music and feel less than alive, less than dancing, less than hiking, less than spinning fire, I am on the computer.

wade

wade in the water, the sunflowers’ petals have graced the lake, swishing backward and forward, swirling around with your thoughts; you wade, they swirl
you swirl, they wade
you dance together

crush

she crushed the ice slowly, turning around to see the situation had not left the kitchen. mom and brother still arguing about the dishes. is that really the most pertinent issue? was it just an outlet for bigger issues? is there anyway the refrigerator would crush ice slower?

wonder

I wonder how much wonder I can retain…does it get lost somewhere in the cracks of making breakfast, brushing my teeth, going to my doctor’s appointment, driving to the park….

train

train yourself well now, every day a step closer. train yourself to love, to be that diamond, to be that vortex, that respite. train yourself well now, you’ll be weary sometimes and lonely too, but have yourself to come back to.

corner

around the corner, it’s the day your never waited for, the lights you thought were fading already, the way you dreamed when you were a kid and that same monster was followed by that same hug and you never realized how that’s called optimism.

montage

take me up to montage, the scenes, how the scenery blurs and becomes the whomping willow, the day by the lake, the time I explored the city by myself and learned how to be myself

remember

i remember that time you took your life off, laid it on the grass next to you just to see how it felt to feel real naked, the kind no one talks about. I remember, I remember the way it felt when I followed suit, like my chest was swelling up and I tried to settle into the discomfort of vulnerability.

sideburns

he said, I gotta trim these bad boys, there’s an art to sideburns, they haveta look like a simmering campfire that’ll burn steadily for a few hours longer, not a massive bonfire.

booth

the booth of the way they always looked. the booth they sold their sighs and lost their signs. the booth, they never listened, the booth they always gave us back our change. too late. we waited. the booth they sat while everyone else watched the game. the booth they sold themselves, they sold skittles. they sold living

domestic

I’ll be a domestic. shine the floors, put the sheets out on the line.
I’ll never be domesticated, never be fine. never be proper or ladylike neither.

curious

I was just curious about the moment, the way the bitterness takes itself, wrapped up or down, the way only a bug can see that children’s toes aren’t tiny just comparatively and why that makes them cute is anyone’s guess, least of all the scientist’s

glowing

her head glowing in the moonlight, all were sure she was magical or
alien
or
someone’s gotta find that beautiful
and
everyone else thinks she’s crazy
ugly
where’d her mother go wrong?
where’d society go

birth

gave birth a wide breadth, a wide breath, a yawn, a space to hold your fear, round, damp, gave birth in a dream, a dream where fears are concrete

waver

and I could write something beautiful
here I waver
I could manifest the world in color form, in words or smiles
but I waver
and I falter

eyeliner

“I don’t wear eyeliner. I don’t take shit. I don’t look back and think of what I could change. I don’t change. I don’t wear eyeliner. I don’t look like a raccoon. I look like myself and that’s what it is”

fluorescent

CYCLE, go cycle, the
wheels are fluorescent, they

in the darkness, there’s
always a brightness

deadbolt

put a deadbolt in my stomach, my heart, wherever it’s supposed to go poetically to sound like I’m heavy, I’m just worn-down, I can’t open and I can’t close very well either

intersection

not at the intersection, no wee were far past that by then. the intersection didn’t matter anymore, it was a straight path, clear trajectory, no choices anymore unless you wanted to drive through the dryest sand you ever tasted. no, we were past intersectionality

puzzled

“I’ll let you know when I’m ready”
and he looked at her, puzzled
he did not know waiting
he did not know ‘ready’
and could not stop asking
begging
pleading

foreign

foreign eyes, foreign smile, more beautiful or less? foreign taste, foreign laugh, still listening or not? foreign manner, foreign poems, do you understand? all the words have different meanings and I don’t mean the way they’re spelled.

gadget

he played with his gadget, if you know what I mean, and his mother told him to stop. apparently it’s not appropriate at the dinner table, or while she’s yelling at him for not taking out the garbage.

acoustic

still acoustic. still sounds soft pittering, tattered, eyeing one another, timid. still acoustic. still so salty, the nostalgia.

I thirst for nothing but water.

connected

interconnected our lives became, my life and your life, before in parallel mine in alchemy, yours free of, and we cross, we merge

strength

I gave my legs strength, in the form of every day utilizing them, a little more pressure, a little more push, a little more muscle. I can push my brain and my heart the same way, a little every day.

success

They called her Alice, said you’re going downdowndo-o-o-own the rabbit hole now and called that success. They said you’re shrinking now, you’re smallsmallsma-a-all and called that success. They said you’re growing now?
