it is impossible for everyone
to not hurt


some were smart in selling their quest
while others just asked


the center of the party
died toothless and swollen


and we go back to
identifying plants instead –

something we know, and a place safe.

about some new music

i feel welcomed by something

that does not

welcome me at all

the oily wall, the water beside the stolen boat:
pitch black

the street light’s there
complete with the smell of pee
& her –

you ve broken every bone & promise &
the worst thing
you could do now is
lie about your grief
and age. age – yes – but for years
i have not felt so
not alone as here,
by the door – so please

let me stay.

just for a while.

shapes & sounds

shapes & sounds … gems for now … reasons for gratitude:
