Sky

I unzipped the night  and saw your flesh underneath.  I unzipped the night  and felt your flesh underneath.  I pressed my lips on your neck,  singing as I kissed the sky.  Your nocturnal dress  rests on the ground,  you don’t need  that black dress tonight.  I keep singing my song  until you feel the sunrise […]

past away

I can’t fly to the past. I can’t beat my wings beyond the guardians of yesterday. They protect what’s carved and etched, with revolving clock hands that spin like a helicopter rotor, only sending me further into the future.

Wild Freedom

Together, on a shore of stars with waves from the dark universe crashing against us, we made promises to each other. We walked on sandy stars, stepping on the edge of light, staring into the sea of darkness, feeling the currents spray eternity on us as we kiss, we watched comets leap like dolphins, and the […]

Love My Goodbyes

I opened the envelopes of my wrists and pulled out two red letters for you. You always liked my love letters, but my goodbye letters are better. Do you see my heart pulse on the pages? The pentameter of my heartbeat exiting your mouth as you read. The exhale of my breath coming out of […]

Need or Bleed?

You need me. I bleed you. When you understand the difference, then you will understand my pain.

Will You Be My Runaway Muse?

I have two coins behind my eyes, mirrors I use to self-reflect, I see runaway women walking in the corridors of my mind, their feet blackened with holy dirt from the promised land, they peel back my thoughts, like skin from rotting apples, smearing the dripping fruit, on the walls of my brain, painting dream […]
