You wanted to be seen. I wanted to be heard, so you pinned your right ear to the right side of my left breast and I filled my eyes with the whole of you.   For the first three weeks we were in love, you would yell “poet talk!” giggling at every exaggerated sentiment I’d […]

There is no symmetry between entrances and exits, a departure cannot be balanced out by a new approach.

Thinking of thoughts that I’ve […]

The poetry smudged your lines too much to see the practicality of falling from grace; you have none, and falling isn’t your strongest suit.   The poetry disregarded the organisation, and rendered you a null in the binary system; you’ve escaped the files, and no label fits your longitude.   The poetry concealed the heaven-hell […]
