It's Monday morning and...

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 21, 2014, 8:00 AM
... I really need to get my shit together but I thought I'd take this time to say I hope all you celebrators had a wonderful Easter and I hope all you non-celebrators had a wonderful day. Consider this my post-Easter/Monday gift to you:

shattered glass that stuck in between
broken toes,
the kind of bittersweet ending that
left the loftiest of men
with pearly tears in their eyes,
and i said he was a twisted man with
leather studded skin.
i told him that he reminded me of nothing
more than the desert wind,
dry and impure,
leaving a pragmatic taste on
pregnant tongues.
close your eyes,
and remind yourself that even the best
of men have
flaws--
scratches on their skin from
previous lives.

we killed our nodding gods with pitchfork prayers,
filled our mouths with pebbles- our hearts with promises
but all for nothing, we are mute in awkwardness.

and let the seasons change us.

that I felt, often,
the sensation of my skin

soul I kept tucked away
in a corner of my own pupil,
curled like the fishing-boy
on the moon,
reading some recent
Italo Calvino novel
with her feet up
and hair pulled back,
sloppily,
or else
writing scripture
in the form of
ten-page love poems,
her left hand cramping
from so many long nights
sat in the shadows,
trying to capture the
silhouette of her own
soul seated in that same brown iris,
blonde hair loose down her back,
sipping a cup of Joe
and swinging one leg over the precipice.
I wonder if my soul’s soul
felt the burning of his smile
on her cheekbone,
the flicker of warmth in her belly
as our eyes meet from across either end of the room,
or if she, too, simply gazed inward at her own
soul,
sleeping,
dreaming dreams of
a lover

we lose
ourselves. Bones turn to oceans and we flounder,
caught in a rip too wide, too deep - too blue and too vast to

Happy reading. :D 

Oh, and I have 49 watchers to go now.
