  • tell me your sorrow
    and i will tell you mine

    tell me what aches
    for you late at night
    when sleep teeters
    but never falls

    tell me all the jelly-moments
    when you slip and quiver
    that tumescent bubble
    how does it pop. whimper?

    tell me if you long for
    something. something
    more than this. this inscrutable
    hardness. Seethes.

    festers with silence.

    the window that
    looks into a blind alley

    the odor of a hospital

    the parking lot
    at 3 am.

    tell me if you ever get lonely
    even with your mate
    your dog your cat
    your friends and kin

    do you ever wish
    you could. Just.
    into some wobbly
    forever far from
    from the lisping
    of the city

    your petty grievances

    the desolation
    of crowded streets

    full of stop signals

    the bedraggled trees
    with musty leaves

    the soot of cars

    the sonic squabbling
    of seagulls

    the bedraggled people
    in their pigeon-dusted

    sometimes i get sad
    looking at cement
    and the crack of a flower
    brewing inside a subway

    sometimes. i wish
    i could sleep

    darkness. void.

    forever & ever

    forgetting my name

    never waking.

    always dreaming.
