... and I bring dA lovelies for you!

can't see the changeI am
starving interim ghost
flesh candid, loose-licking calcium
framework overrun
mind like wire
bent and shaped and shuffled
in unlabeled collection bins
tomorrow is
staring through whiskey glass,
looking lost, buried
cracked time capsules
with less-than-best intentions
stuck turbines
covered in sickness oil,
shuddering the pause
  ars haikueticathe rhythm of a
snapshot. five-seven-five. why?
to paint all the moons.
  PyramidsThe secret remarked in dead languages
kept in pyramids for the greed of men.
The steel vaults—
all locks and deadly mechanisms.
It was so simple.
They killed each other before the sun
on rolling fields of red and brown grass.
They murdered each other in the light of the moon.
All the world's gold and holy secrets.
It was love.
  VirginiaRobert E. Lee lives just miles from my door,
bending at the right. On the corner, is a white church
housing brown skin in the Virginia spring. My best
friend’s father has a Confederate flag hanging in his
living room. A white military man married to a Filipino
woman because her skin is a few shades lighter, more
tan than true brown, light enough to speak
love to, on occasion.
The Civil War grounds up by Todd’s Tavern are fenced
off, but momma swears she hit a ghost on the bridge
one night, eyes blooming in refracted headlights—
allowing the past to slip into consciousness
—fingers curling like the flowering dogwoods, singed
at the tips, like fire ants threading their clay houses,
hidden under soft mounds in the earth.
And the bees are building up in my throat, as I watch
the fruit in my neighbor’s yard begin to rot.
I can’t touch the roots. But the bees are trembling like
some cracked bell, a revolution, a crying.

snippetsi. your hands are maps i wanna memorize inside and out
so i'll always know the way home.
ii. you're dead to me but i keep you alive
on paper and black text.
iii. i will weave stories out of the lines on your skin.
iv. joke's on you: i made my heart out of nothing but brittle plastic,
good luck finding a home in there.
v. empty like a hollowed out pumpkin.
except not as scary,
just more pathetic.
vi. i have secrets that no one knows that i'm scared i will end up
taking to the grave.
i don't know if my soul can handle all that baggage.
vii. i want to hold fire in the palm of my hand
  fire and love are most destructive.shame i'm smoking menthols
and believing i can keep you.
cup my face in your hand
from a million miles away.
i'm talking to universe,
but she hasn't got much to say.
i'm breathing in the rain
when you reach for my hand.
we're ancient royalty
half an hour until closing time
as we breathe life from hookah hoses
and let it ache in our skulls.
i can feel the weight of your worry
and it is making my shoulders ache.
your energy is planets
but nothing aligns.
  Cry w/ meI am becoming.
The woods are hungry
& it echoes into
my stomach—
urges to find the
exact coordinates
of where my darkness
was born among
the aspen leaves
flirting w/ each other.
The cricket in my
squawks at the
& I can remember
the taste of shaken
it tastes the same
as June tree’s tripping
on my tongue.
My nails grow,
clawing at the
& no matter what
slick cage
I find myself
biting down on
from here on—
licking in my grave—
my wilderness
will be holding
The thunder
& its rowdy sirens
doesn’t scare me
  studenti like your cutoffs a lot
i've only ever seen skinny punk kids
wear jeans like that
but they suit you so much better
your boxers hang out
and i slip my hand under the waistband
feel the fine hair of the skin there
you are always pouring something into something
so you can only giggle when i touch your butt
and when you giggle, i do too
i think it's important that we laugh together so much
you've taught me how not to take myself
so damn seriously
how life is not a series of tests
but rather
a series of moments
masking opportunities to learn
i archive exchanges with strangers
like a student
locking pinkies with your silent scanning
you are a welcome observer in all situations
i seek to mimic your tender patience
you seek to mimic my ability to be mindless
our reciprocity is perfect
i count myself lucky in each instance of imbalance
for our equilibrium
