An Untitled Pome

I'm going to live the next life in the same world as my body. I'm going to conquer something stunningly simple. There's going to be a tiny house on a forgettably pleasant street. Everything is going to make sense every day. Anger is going to lie down and beg love's forgineness. Love will forgive everything but itself. And when the moon lifts its face it's going to rain its...

1000 Things I'm Never Gonna Say

like how today there was this tall girl crossing the street in the afternoon sun dark and pure as a hundred summer midnights braids long as her spine laughing at something with her friends natural and selfless as wind and the way it plunged me into the deepest anguish of the moment because happiness crossed her face the way riverwater continually rolls over the faces of smooth stones...

A Thousand Things

I have forgotten a thousand things most of them moments of silent wondering in which one pair of eyes can't break from another pair of eyes and tremulous whispers give way to the first brush of breath across breath across lips moving toward the heat of other lips already kissing out the shapes of words that will never be spoken sung or whispered into that disappearing space between lips here...

Home, Not Home

brick wall windows like the haunted eyes of the exiled no one gets a chance we fall in and out of love on sidewalks behind long abandoned train stations where all the tiny angels burst into flames only spring understands some of the sad ones fell in love and never fell out some of the beautiful ones never loved at all today, in the grey noise of this city of false renewal we dream again of...

The Living Ones

we are the ghosts you never see us walking down the street among you beautiful ones the living ones we are the ones you pass without a second thought for the tiny brush of air you feel in our wake we are hardly worth the time it would take to pause and consider for we are not of the same world we are here you are there we taste everything and consume nothing but we are so...

Everything is Always on Fire

I will never know how this reaches you or where or even if They are only words sung to the raging fires of dusk because today was another mystery we are not permitted to solve We are only always reaching because reaching is only always what we do when the night comes alive in the light of these tiny cities we call our hearts When you finally lie down and peel back the darkness I will give...

tonight, for another last time I'm going to fall in love with a darkness that will cover me like water and wash down my spirit in a riding current of dreams in which the angels are free to love devils and the devils bow their heads longing for the mercy of anyone I awaken shattered by it all without remembering the fall...

Central Falls

I see her here now smiling at the late day sun brightly as all the laughing caramel girls bursting out the bodega doorways onto the sidewalk oblivious to how the air falls hopelessly in love Up out of cracked cement dark flowers blow kisses at the sky...

This is where I put things Everything that has no other place Here's a tiny spate of gentle rain Coming at the end of a hard spring And here's that moment I sat beside her Studying the lines of her face While the world was burning down To nothing we could use anymore Here are all the silences Between the words we gave away And here are the remnants of my heart ...

Roads We Never Got Lost On

the things we do for the first and last time never knowing rooms we enter or leave, never going back again the people we might have talked to but didn't when we turned corners we never remembered roads we never had a chance to get lost on the lives we didn't live and the lives we lived never knowing the hundred thousand times we were never seen in return lips...
