Favorite Quote:
in the animal soup

Will the days go on 
In this supplicated silence?
I wrote a poem and I had a dream of mutual
Annihilation. Time-stewed perspective colored fault:
It feels like a common madness.

Displaced by hushed disaster, I haunt
Architecture of the soul - yours, mine
- crystalline castles groaning at the foundations. 
All fell.

Poetry, poetry. Cut with a strike, a scratch,
Deep scribbled chaos driving into the page
And tearing through to white flesh with a powerful ease.
Ink spits from a furious pen as verse leaks from lonely lip.
Diffusing through bleached fibers to leave a bruise deep in the page,
Smearing a distrust in the narrator.

The author's comments:
i wrote this poem in the aftermath of the breakdown of a relationship which was very important to me. it is about trying to consolidate the feelings of loss and being lost, of being alone and trying to understand exactly how i felt about the situation and what the abandonment by a someone who i respected and cared about so much means about me.
