    blink, and you won’t miss it we live out of the corners of our bright and blinded eyes, out of time and cracking wise, yeah, cracking up, we’re breaking up forever with our histories and memories, our elegies, belonging to a family so much bigger than the earth in widescreen beaches...

    taking stock here at the end of every tooth in this openmouthed yawn holler howl of a year: one suicide, several survivals, a bare new soul, and a string of pearls, one cold sweet morning hungover and endless black coffee, bashful before the beautiful friends of friends, dim half-familiar...

    i have four of you in a plastic grocery bag- a gift, shiny prizes from a neighbour’s day out walking on water- swinging from my arm now. reverent, I cradle you curious at your open eyes, fresh from the icy maw from which you were pulled, and imagine this body, supple, slipping through yo...

    because she is a hurricane of confidence and joy and freedom and all i want to do is get swept up. because she is the center of all our adventures, the catalyst for all our friendships, she is the glue and the reason at the end why our motley crew means love to me. because she is not pure...

    i am thinking of the two of you side by side- she is small and soft where you are a long straight line someone drew on my life a few christmases ago when i was new and beautiful and entirely unprepared. each of you have my love tattooed on your lives, and i'm sorry if i have stained or...

    tiny broken thing, you don't have to be so scared. i know you are little and the world, even my world, is a giant awful place, and i can't promise you'll always be safe, but you can at least be still, here on my breast, in the cinnamon firstsnow warm-in-a-red-quilt night. yo...

    he and i talked about what a girl should be- she is soft but not soft she is graceful when no-one is looking but falls down all the time she is a willow and she bends through the storms, leaning hungry into the wind stray curls licking at her neck laughing while the forest's falling...

    part sweat, part soft leather, a waft of tobacco and the press of bodies through layers of wool coats and suede jackets, shoulder blades beneath hands as secret salty tears are dried on sleeves, sawdust, green in a broken august and the dying musk of a forest carpet just before dawn in earl...

    i. the milky way knew just what i had in mind when i set out to find you that night; pale and aching, she lit the way as if she had some sort of stake in this tryst. i can't imagine what a galaxy might want with you or me, but maybe she is sentimental and hated, like i did, to see you...

    here is to our misfit band of bodies the wretched, hopeful, broken and the new we'll bravely stand and stay together in this cold and golden weather praying that our lips aren't turning blue oh, if she loved us all we would not love her as dearly as we do while she is free aching ...

    wake up from a white dream bedding down beneath trees breathing under water in a fractured skintight world and through my wide eyes i see stars, i see everything, i see god, i see everything in a silver shuddering layer cake, i don't know what it means to be this free or see that fri...

    only feeling a little sentimental; your sister is a dancer, she looks just like you saw her picture quite by accident the other day and all i’m saying is it’s curious what this cold thing time has done to us she’s taken apart the family ties we’d formed together once again....
