Sometimes it is comforting to hide under grey linen. It compromises the gloom of the sky with the armor of my sheets; blemished with rips and tears from an unruly sleep. They’re from the bracelet you gave me. Copper and punctured with holes that are supposed to tell me who I am. If I misplaced it I would be lost and the green hue of my wrist would be exposed. Worshipping a sky that graces us with smog and stars that comfort lost souls is all I can claim as a higher power. Even so, what have the stars done for me other than overwhelm and leave me with awe? The curiosity makes my bones itch and long for a cure. Answers are overrated. People beg for them. Nobody should really want them because they end in disappointment. Answers will seize the desire to continue. If we attempt to filter the smog out of the skies we will be left naked and exposed; criticized by the stars. The trick to the presence of a grey area is they are always at fault. If you commit to one side, the stars will laugh at your naivety. I prefer to breath the smog in the confines of my sheets, warm and alone.
I never was attached to that great sect,
Whose doctrine is, that each one should select
Out of the crowd a mistress or a friend,
And all the rest, though fair and wise, commend
To cold oblivion…
True love has this, different from gold and clay,
That to divide is not to take away.
Sometimes stores stare at you
You ask them why
“I’m just window shopping…”
Black pebbles tickle my feet and stain my heart
tar and goo and plaque clog arteries and
fishing lines confine you to the bottom
of the pond he has in his back yard.
What a fucking yard!
Reiterated with mosquito bites
on your ass that won’t ever stop itching.
And sometimes you think its okay to scratch
But sometimes you give up.
Because you know it won’t go away,
you know it is a lost cause
Being thrown upside down doesn’t phase
an upside down mind
Vertigo, violet, lavender
dress the most beautiful of people.
But you’d never know that violet is just purple
that blemishes perfect skin…
Because that lace is just so damn pretty.
