An Incarnation of Voice

Pressure in your chest

as trespassing words approach,

to eat once free thoughts.

14,000 Year Old Water

We’ve crushed our threshold,

giggling, slurring and smiling

into the old tide.

Strong & Fearless

Living in a state

of non-committal warfare

is strong and fearless.

Saturn in My Lungs

Oh powerful space,

dark, glorious, persistent,

leave rings ’round my lungs.

Wish to Remember

Drunk and Ship again,

trying not to ruin lives

foreign to thine eyes.

Pure Correlation

The taunting echos

tap, tap, with the pounding feel,

pure correlation.

3:00 a.m. Come Down

In puddled brilliance,

dog shit and lesbian fights

cling tight to our teeth.

A Quick Sobriety Check

Doth the cock still crow?

Is there still a pouring out

of first thought, best thought?

The Miracle.

No matter the time

spent restless, wanting mercy,

bare skin always wins.

The Miracle.

No matter the time

spent restless, wanting mercy,

bare skin always wins.
