axis

you were my horizon

i was vertical
blind

crossing the ocean
without a plotted
course

you were solid fixed
i was fitted. the
waves and sheets the
sun and salt

nevermind. it’s not our fault
the night is disobedient

the suspension
bridge of light

you
gave me my
life

scarred
out of sight
blind

nevermind
we are like kids

we are travelers

we laugh at the future
we are all
right

traffic berry jam

traffic berry jam
on the razor edge
of love
hot with thoughts
we got blown
on highway five
of tire
filament shrapnel float
dribbles off the lips
cresting to burst
slide down glassy
eyes
lazy wander figured
thighs to a base
metal
i am stolen
you could score with me
traffic berry jam
on the razor edge
of love

what was given us

the colorless moments of stressed inhibition

must i be always backed into a corner before i come

fighting?

a sea of bad news and brake lights

ahead

even tears and smiles

were a stretch

then

from that place of half flag summer fatigue

arose a current from the far

east

we would not know until we opened two walls

the windows

life came into the trees

i awoke feeling different

all the colors returned

time was no longer just a waiting for work

there was meaning

it was personal

it was yours

it was mine

could not stand (the summer)

trapped by heat the relentless wave

of sun. gimme a lemon

ginger ale

on ice

 

my mind in a prism my thoughts burn through me like sea

salt the machines and engines double

down like doom

 

throw me in a swimming pool turn the sky to liquid falling

down. cool rain reaches demigod status in the valley

leaking antifreeze side by fields

 

rivers areĀ  the queens

 

sacks of ice pulled down from freezer doors to fracture

on the tile

 

night sails in like allies freeing

paris circa
