    This is the place where I scraped my knees and cleaned them with peroxide even when no one told me to and This is the place where I planted new flowers and watered them every summer morning before the heat came like fog and watched then die and get buried with leaves in the fall, but I knew they ...

    If I ever see you with someone else I'll break their jaw. I know your lips will heal them, your laughter ease them, and your presence help their heart beat. maybe I will do it just to know that jaw has touched you recently and therefore my hand has touched your body and I can smile, pretending ...

    I’m the Valentine to your sins, Carrying away feather-made whispers that whimper when the wind goes through them. I’m the saint to your bed post prayer test, Keeping count of names, lip tastes, checking them into the wood hung so neatly between and behind your twin mattress. I’m the han...

    I keep saying it but no one is listening. Myself included. The faint tremor in my heart that reminds me of stress. The overwhelming sense that my eyes are holding too much water so I swallow. The ache so far down in my gut that I feel like all of me will swim in the toilet. I put so many sets o...

    I left myself with you. You watched me from the doorway, Fingers running along the seams of your pockets and a couple of teeth pinning lips And I went away, hours and days, Miles and months. States knew my name Streets tasted my body as I went along Lights and rain, sun and breezes I made e...

    I don’t know where to start here. Lost in a white canvas that I have destroyed before, made new before, defeated and crumbled and made it so scarred that I made it rethink what it thinks about thinking . . . before. It may sound just a tiny bit crazy and a little bit weird, but all is true. My...

    You told me that I’m hated most in this world and I believed you because it’s true. The sun constantly licks fire at me and the moon drowns me in the tide, slow and indefinably smooth. Within the crumbling city I find the feed. Billboards hang heavy next to obsolete window panes and they tel...

    Streets and the curbs tell me of you. 'She left beauty wherever she went,' they say. 'But not anymore.' The thoughts that were in your head before and the wants that were in your heart before and the soft murmur in your eyes before went somewhere so I cannot find them. A medu...

    Alive by the heart and dead by the brain Lost in the spaces between the shadow and the soul. Quiet and unrefined. I can feel the rope burns throughout my skin, You are the noose around the spaceman’s neck, swinging him around the stars So he can close his eyes silently and without thought. ...

    I’m familiar with the sound of my heart beating, The thumping and pumping of strong iron and life throughout my entire being is as comfortable as it sounds. Close, rhythmic, exact and unintentional. I sit silent in the last place you could have hoped to find me in listening. I can’t here th...

    I was born in this world who I am meant to be. A wild flower in the wall, and flat skipping stone and the Broke glass pieces on the tarmac miles above desert dirt. My skin is translucent, my skin unbreakable yet bendable. You touch it and it turns to the shape you want it to be. What it needs ...

    I’ve seen this place be torn to shreds. What had once been a room full of cubicles is now home to a few extension cords with no floor. No floor, no limitations, no footprints or desk furniture who press their heavy bodies so forcibly on the carpet that it can hold that shape for years. Years. Th...

    Some places in the world are common to me. They look like my hands and pruned up fingers, they taste like stomach acid and they smell of sulfur and the sea. But that’s okay with me. I walk there. To all of them. My feet drag on and on and the places I go are then not places at all. Just familia...
