    I am sad. And it feels kind of tickly inside, a little below my ribcage, like sinking, or like when a line hooks a fish. I feel a little hollow and like waiting and like sitting in an empty plastic bathtub after a night on the phone with the finger on the last number but locked muscl...

    I don't kill spiders, they have feelings too. How would you like it if someone came up and squashed you? I don't kill spiders. 'Cause they have mothers. And as we know, mothers cry when their kids get hurt. I don't smush spiders, I think it's rude--- all they&#...

    We are filled with wanting too much--- much more than we could ever attain. And then letdowns, and bad days. “I could never write a book,”--- and certainly not in something as beautiful as that thing you gave me. Sometime, when everything’s dead and it don’t matter anymore, we’ll look b...

    We pretended we were dragons and wolves and our tongues were fire and our hearts were made of gold ("Brillantes, como tus aretes,") and we ran, frantically, from the monsters who would take our eyes away. We'll be safer under the blankets, you said. Drum-beat, heart-...

    He made things for her, beautiful things that could break if anyone but he or her touched them. Little wooden animals and music boxes and silk dresses laden with lace and so much love for everything she breathed. He brought her flowers from the garden for her soft colors and delicate han...

    I hate you. Truly, I do. The slow opening of my morning eyes hates you. My double-helix curls hate you. If I were a mountain, my minerals would hate you. Everything about me hates everything about you. My smile hates you. My knuckles hate you. The sound I make after I yawn hates you. ...

    Maybe you didn't talk to me Because it hurt too much. Too much, maybe, Yes, that must be it. I was always on your rooftop, Following birds and--- Putting things around their feet--- Small things that didn't matter to anyone, Like the mumbled things Said in my sleep. I Have...

    They are calling to you from the front porch; The attic has lines and blurs like old photographs And their voices are echoes, So far away--- They love you, so much "Play safe, now," When the night comes in, All the other children go home "It's time for dinner" nev...

    I used to walk like you do, Submerged in comfortable circumstances; Warm corners among laughing people: Searching--- Always searching. We are desperate beings. Floating about from lover to lover, From chance to chance--- Over and backward again, Until we find the one Bird Whom we think w...

    I am being forgotten. I feel it, like an echo, A scratched, dusty mirror. My skin starts to blend in--- Fade into the chairs and trees Behind me. The feeling of my lips Escapes your memory, And a weight Is lifted from your shoulders--- It's a little easier to breathe now, Now th...

    Before we could comprehend each other's eyes, when we were children, we would crawl into small spaces and not be afraid, because we had found a secret that no one else cared for, and therefore provided an escape from this world into that of the small space. Our knees were always d...

    Don't feel guilty. Clear your eyes, no tears On your sweet cheeks tonight--- We're recovering. Lost in our conscience, Rabbits don't carry clocks and watches--- Don't feel bad about what happened--- We'll be fine, We'll be alright. Don't cry....

    1. There are many spaces Between here and where you are. There are ships And there are balls of yarn – Warm glows from inside the windows Of the houses of strangers. I am trying to decide Whether this plant is alive Or dead; And I come to no conclusions. 2. When someone (someth...

    Colored my fingers blue to-day; dad laughed and said I looked dead. But mom sat me down (all quiet,) like a child---- and sadly shook her head. I reminded her eyes of a long time ago, "when a man hung himself," she said. And now all I can think of (when I se...

    Two beautiful people have a beautiful dinner in a foggy sort of semi-shade, the lamps a dim glow above the table. They speak of beautiful things--- untouchable things--- that I cannot hear... amidst all the speech surrounding the suppers of privilaged human beings. Elegant; delicate ...

    Should we die Looking up at an empty sky One mid-October night, Let me gracefully lay myself to rest And be forgotten – There is this established order, a code of conduct That we must follow, [and I cannot,] Lest civilization and humanity Be degraded to nothing but bees in a hive (how...
