and then,
just like that,
the world falls out from under you.

Figure eights in the tall grass
bourbon in the mason glass
and, darling! you.

Someone today told me that I reminded them of Jane, from Pride and Prejudice.
What a lovely compliment!

The kid next door drowned in a bucket
near the night-made moonshine in the backyard.


while boys lapped wine out of dog bowls in the kitchen,
girls tied twine around their tawny hair.

Jane, in the bathroom (with the golden knob turned),
stood: white

fingers around corded neck
strangling herself;
while studying pores in the gilded mirror.

I don't cry when I'm sad anymore.
Tears calcify in my tummy,
Fears go inside of my toe.

How can I ask anyone to love me
When all I do is beg to be left alone?

I have these dreams
where you're standing by the side of my bed
laughing about the sex tapes all the kids
downtown say you make,
and I'm still wearing my retainer.

The last time I saw Richard was Detroit in '68,
And he told me all romantics meet the same fate someday.
Cynical and drunk and boring someone in some dark cafe.
You laugh, he said you think you're immune, go look at your eyes
They're full of moon.
You like kisses and roses and pretty men to tell you
All those pretty lies.

Joni Mitchell

I loved the grip of your hand on the back of my neck.
