Motion Sickness.

Archemedes and I (together),
in a revolving door.
Here's the lever and the fulcrum--
We'd turn the axis all around,
if there was just one place left (firm to stand).


(by Sally Mann).
the infamous moment has come…
when I have to call home and ask for money
to pay for the week's trains.

paycheck, why you no here?!

the middling
the mindless
the let me justs
the don'ts the nevers
the worst case naysayers
the wait the come backs
the rip your blinders off
the twist the rearviews
the forget about its
the i told you so's and the
i won't say it buts
to the diagnostics
and the born agains
to the miracle makers
to the false
the free
the fair
the few
the forgotten
fucked up

I'll say


let it be.
let it become.

Happy Holidays.

…and the friend zone wins again.

10 pm

"My dad used to tell me:
'Whatever you just did, don't do it again.'
But you see, its in my personality.

11:15 pm

I'm so sad, I just might not make it through this song. 
My dad used to tell me that too.
'There's money in sadness, kid.'
Razor's edge."


"Do you remember that time
we found a bag of amphetamines on the ground
in DC?"

"Yeah man, I took care of that."

"Our nation's capitol."

I'm Not The Person That I Once Was.

Why won't you let go of my head?

November 19, 2011



We named the river
and overcame the moon.

We made hard mistakes
and when it rained,
our cigarettes were surrounded.

Underneath tunnels on long drives
hearts pound,
and the dashboard breathes in time.

Now That I'm Older.

Something deep and watchful in the child knows that this is bound to end, is already ending. In a moment someone will get up and turn on the light. Then the old folks will remember the children and they won't talk any more that day. And when light fills the room, the child is filled with darkness. He knows that every time this happens he's moved just a little closer to that darkness outside. The darkness outside is what the old folks have been talking about. It's what they've come from. It's what they endure. The child knows that they won't talk any more because if he knows too much about whats happened to them, he'll know too much too soon, about what's going to happen to him.

Help Me(ow).

I don't think I can handle today.
Too busy.
Too tired.
Too awkward.

I Can't Make You Love Me.

Justin, you're breaking my heart all over again.

I'd rather learn from one bird how to sing 
than teach ten thousand stars how not to dance.

Shyness is nice and shyness can stop you 
from doing all the things in life that you'd like to.

(grow again) acquainted dear,
to patterns of persistence,
to habits of hopelessness


(we've known) black ash,
blistered bruises
the back seats of cars
and the gray, cold space beneath the bleachers


(i fear) the shadow followed us here,
to lay its head on my shoulder
to clasp the palm of your hand.

Only One.

I am the only one who thinks I'm going crazy 
and I don't know what to do.

Don't Call Again.

You'd later say
(months away)
I was the only 
girl you'd ever loved
but I was not the only girl
that never loved you.

To All I Left Behind.

All that forced
wasn't better than nothing at all
and when the plane took off
I didn't think of you.

or all or none or

I don't owe you anything.
