SHAVED

A hip, a finger,

a fist, a knuckle—

I came down for two weeks.

The average bone cut deep;

the jump off a three-story building

had to do with a gust of wind

through my eyelid,

thumb and forefinger

about an inch apart.

WHEN I'M 30 I'LL LOOK BACK AND SAY I WAS LOOKING FOR SOMEBODY

They fell in love

with that slow progression,

more intense,

more intense,

two weeks, six months

and no, you can’t swing—

swing for hours, that

movement in your shoulders,

how you dip.

 

Even more than that

they fell in love with the night holes,

with the shaking—

an explosion hard enough

to cage them in.

MOLTEN

Lava said glass

likes to tell stories

and that perception

is just the facts

out of context.

 

There are two shades to this:

Be the vein or be the formula.

THE INNATE RESPONSE

Blinking is for liars.

Things like that rubbed off on me.

Perception is death is

shutting down is tangible

you can touch it.

I could do something,

have a big bed

and sleep in it.

It would be strange,

this most important thing.
