ok,
so my night starts out
in fits of sneezing blues
and dark air.
i find myself in fits
as my sheets melt into my body
but my consciousness
is as present as ever,
so please forgive me
when i can't push my skin
into your personal space
and content myself
with personal questions.

i don't know how to feel thunder,
but i'm betting it's like this,
i'm betting it's like
standing under the beads of
hot shower for long enough
that your skin shrivels like a fig's.
all i get is that it's
electric, and i am
so afraid
to imagine what it would be like
to actually touch you
with intent.

look-

i tell you
how this boy
with cotton in his ears
a hundred feet high
tries to kiss me
because it's my way
of telling you
that i am valued
real estate
in this city
and you are lucky
to live here.

really
i don't think this.

really
i think i am lucky
to have a plot of land
to sink my weary so(ul/les)
into at the end
of the day,
a bed to sleep in
when the sun goes dark.
i want to look at my hands
and see the cranberry stain
left behind from
touching you.

maybe these weren't
the best intentions
after all.
oh my god don't even ask about my titles
or my life really
neither will behoove you

I read, and read and read your work and i'll never get over how much I can apply it to my own life. I'll also never get over how simplistically amazing it is
