I’m not looking for someone who can save me,
life rafts might keep you afloat but they rarely
get you anywhere and I’ve got places I wanna go.
So break me in two,
peel back my rib cage and cover every page of my
heart with love poems you will burn someday.
And it’s amazing how much noise people ignoring each other can make.

She’s an earthquake…
I remember holding you against the sink,
with the sun soaking the window, the soft call
of your hips, and the intricate flickers
of thought chiming your eyes. Your mouth,
like a Saturday. I remember your
long thighs, how they
opened on the sofa, and the pulse
of your cry when you came, and
sometimes I miss you
the way someone drowning
remembers the air.
