NEW POETRY EVERY WEEK
And if I could compel youinto existence, you would movelike a cloud across the sky
You say you rescued me, and I believe you, I believe you.
(upcoming) I have seen this sky.All that is left is you.
FEATURED POET: JANUARY 2018
It always astonishes me how whole days can disappear, vanishing into oblivion along with items from last week’s grocery list,and clouded memories of the past.
A few imperative fractions of yourselfhave been missing since the summer in which you turned twelve.
Age is the only law now,gravity pulling our fleshtowards creaky wooden floors,skin dragged downward to stained carpeting
FEATURED POET: DECEMBER
i think the house might float away. i think i might never breathe again if i could reach for that dip in the mattress and feel your weight.
Home as carnivore, as a thing that hungers, home as raptor, as sky full of teeth, snagged on feathers. Home as ravenous beast, as night, as mountain: alpine woodlands frost-licked and glittering.
FEATURED POET: NOVEMBER
This requires the full attention of mercy.& If mercy exists in any life, it is exhausted.If summer has lungs, it is breathing out.
FEATURED POET: AUGUST
i say curve all light until it reaches you. fill you full. i say shadow is another form of movement. i want to shadow move with you.
what I mean is, how do you touch a lover who can’t even say your name? I had a body that felt everything and we couldn’t talk about it...
