hugging her instead

waking up alone
singing awake my smile to
the sound of nothing

Auto Combust

i still think you should
have had red hair so you could
light the world on fire

Wedding Day

all the ways you smile
make the world jump up and down
for togetherness

thank you

Up in Trees

flying squirrels die and
what you love you must love now
so don't look down babe

clammy palms

put your hand in mine
if you don't mind my crushing
the love out of you

something for the both of us

i talk a good game
because i want to crawl back
to your open arms

Alternative Devotion

what could i tell you
that would mean the same thing as
i love you so much?

Ziplock Bag

Why on earth did i
discard my sweet dignity
in the holding pen?

This sealed ziplock bag
Holds the evidence of my
Naked trembling shame.


taking by force
the tortured swinelove in your
violet cummerbund

i start to miss you
hallucinating you, babe
so long gone from here


fat flying angels
love poems, nothing but love poems,
around in circles

flying on laughter
throwing golden confetti
at twinkling blue eyes

This face full of doubt
quietly realizing
That nothing is perfect

the Thing that was his Because

deep in the sunset
of his burning cigarette
i saw the reason

Note to Self

write me a scene
let there be a guy dangling
from a trapeze, dead.

The Shiniest Boy

my heart still pounding
you make it so difficult
alone in the snow

incorrigible and true
the color of tomorrow
you make it worth it
