Pray // Prey

lemniscate ambition
deep end
deep thaw
introverted radiation 
was never necessity
sweet swollen lotus
pray, peel!
prey not 
on the lackluster leftovers of 
the penitent.

Breaking // News

Collect Belongings. Exit.
Sit. Wait. Swallow Whole Bites
(while you exercise the right for them to relinquish your own.)

Check In. Check Out. 185 Miles to your next
(temporary) Destination.

Home is where the heart is, if you can remember where you left it. They had high hopes, you know.

Power On. Log In. 
Fein intimacy (as though it still exists) until loneliness reminds you that
It never did.
Chime in as though you care, but already can't remember what you said. 

Descend. Light Rain. 61 Degrees. 

The buzz from the tele: 
the magical glass house (with bouffant and boobs)
mouthing muted mutiny. 
They Did It Again. 
Breaking News.

Dissolved // Girl (ii)

Lights out. Eyes up to 
the stars, to the skies that drink 
us in while we sink.


High // Dry


Forests // Farmland

deepfreeze freefall
snow climb magnified in globular caskets
                                               while order prevails amid the 
                                         shifting                       lost                  little chaos.
an hour into the divided 
forests             and          farmland, stealing frozen frivolities and 
anxiously awaiting the thaw. 
a paralyzed panic is pressing against the breaks
slowing what was constant contact into a 
slovenly stall.
