taste of my perspective
isn’t it selfish?
love heals all things, eventually
come swim on this wavelength
til we both perish
higher selves at highest heights

Two Months

are tales of you enough?
doesn’t feel like it but it’s been two months,
I can still feel the air in church,
hear your mother’s sobs,
can’t believe you’re gone.

Alice in LA

pain not from concentrate
fresh-squeezed blood, unfiltered sadness
in/out of breath, and veins
winter yet it hardly rains
lost in a field of what ifs again

(156 characters incl. spaces)



whether it be late nights-vodka- dancing,
or tucked in to a documentary,
drawn to you,
like the sun to the horizon.

(117 characters incl. spaces)



pretenses flow like wine
a river through your blackened insides
roses bloom for spring
“will there be any at your grave site?”
a thought that plagues all men

(157 characters incl. spaces)


dead heat

rise like smoke
four o’clock in the morning
tender/loving, raw/unnerving
not much else in common
