Bubblegum Chaos.+ Take down the walls and try to find the pink bowels of your house.
Squeeze your pupils like you need to, as if you are trying to squeeze
a blackhole out of it. Swim in the mirrors like you're in love, or on fire.
+ Tell your melon coffee sweater to screw off. Tell your mother
I said hi. Tell the particles you inhale to slow down.
+ Turn on the radio and listen to the politicians polish and wax.
Tell Alaska she is not good enough. Fire a handgun and
look surprised when you do. Inhale the smoke like it's your mother's
purple ashes. Talk about straitjackets in public and drink too much
beer and fall on tables. Look at the bruises on your thighs
like you would at the sunset.
+ Look a deer in the eyes and try to guess who got scared first.
Take a ginger nap in a white bed and circle your hips in the closet,
eat soy beans.
+ Write about the first time you had sex. The first argy

I remember when you told me that God was in the rain. I am still waiting for that rain, for that relief, to know you still sleep under the same moon and breathe the same air. I've been lost here without you.
People have come and gone from our doorstep but I refuse to open the door to anyone else but you on that day you finally return.
This place is cold at night. I cannot sleep without your warmth wrapped around me. The violets I planted when we first moved in have ceased to grow with the lack of rain, the lack of you.
I can feel the breath of winter begin to breathe it's first. Autumn wakes early and yet I die in the place biting frost dwells.
Not even the scent of violets are present to satisfy my despair. Not even the sound of your violin that sings in my longing memory can soothe this sadness that consumes my soul.
You once told me that the space in front of one's face is romance, and I find only empt

Only A Deeper Impulse Given"When, through the mist of years receding, Its woes but live in reverie!"

The cracked sidewalk, the spit, the ancient dirty wads of gum will one day line their name around the symbol of a star. The desperate flicker of headlights glower upon pale skin through dirty windows. The city sighs, waiting for inspiration."
"Everyone envies them..."
"But they bleed plenty for what they end up getting."
The sound of chewing.
