    the world becomes a great ugly ice sculpture with blurred figures carving holes on the inside of the white box with a lead ceiling The underside of feet shift on a thick, slippery skin the pavement grew overnight We escape like hermits into our dark, heated pockets while Time passe...

    I’m that girl who always smells like banana peppers and cheese bread. The one who says, “Welcome to Subway, what can I get for you?” in a voice two octaves above normal. I don’t want to be that girl, but I’m stuck here behind containers of chopped chicken and sweet onion sauce, forcing m...

    One day I forgot about you You, with the brown skin and smooth talk, race cars and racing heartbeat against my ribcage in the back of that crowded discount theater One phone call A dozen texts You sweet-talked me to the curb and taught me to do a perfect downshift I laughed then fo...

    You embrace the coldness of the river Journey of death awaiting, cruel, at water’s edge You oblige, yes, in a trance As a lily bursts in bloom Leaving me With questions new Is this your birth? Is this your death? Murmurs echo, strange and cold Strangely, yes, For not your own Belon...
