some nights i am absolutely sure that 
the moon misses the dawn
in the exact way your 
misses my bed.

i see you, marymount,
lets talk.

i could use a few more people
from here in my life.

i love when you push the
volcano of me, i turn to 
an ice-cream-cone, running
sticky over your

nothing makes sense 
nothing makes sense

the kids are coked out and the 
city is ruining me slowly and
i've never been so happy
by myself before.
steal it down deep-
take a big breathe and hold
for the entirety of this poem. 

black mold creeping up the caulk in the bathtub and institution 
lights with safety glass just to remind us that 
we can't sleep for a reason and there are eyes in the 
the things you think about when you can't
sleep, always looking. eyes peeled like great big
oranges, citrus sweet and blue as the moon
twice a year.
i come around with flat feet and stand strong
at the front door of a flat
that is not welcome in this tiny building. 
i am rejected like a cork from your bed.

life is a movie and i am the scene where everyone kisses.
life is a movie and i am the scene where everyone dies.

breathe out. 
read it again, slow this time
like you'd touch her if you could. 
run the words over your tongue
until it makes sense.

coffee rings and dark circles under your eyes, the love
keeps you up at night.
you'll ruin her bones 
in the snow slopped city with an apartment full of cracks
and your voice 
when you tell her you're in love.

you brought me soup
when i was sick
which is something we cannot ignore

she told me i was easy to love, like a
sparrow in the attic that keeps her up at night 
with the song of us breathing. 

i was easy to hate, i was 
cocked smiles at all the wrong times
and all she ever did was trust me
to not be
so insane.
