Forgetting

 

 

Thinking of you

in a way abstract,

trying to find significance

in words,

turning the page smoking

burning the fingertips.

 

And I know you are listening

to my far away song,

I’m not quite dead yet,

just skeptical the way

the mouse is of the cat.

 

I have been swallowed whole before.

 

Letting go of water,

not willing or wanting affliction,

pasting your picture

at the ending

of an unread book.

 

Placing a milk glass in your hand; invisible,

you have touched my soul and left it.

 

Never forgetting the Moon

and that I’m always in your shadow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Repeat Offender

 

 

Waking up in water

turning turning

you have been

holding me down

in the river

for so long.

 

Waiting waiting

never the chance

to catch my breath,

you hold your hand

over my mouth

and pinch my nose

with your teeth.

 

I can taste your oppression

like a mosquito tastes blood,

running running away

away away away,

and I don’t want to

share my clothes with you

anymore.

 

You should look me in the eye

when I evaporate,

You should cheer me on

when I finally let you go.
