They asked me why I do not fly,
I told them it’s not that I don’t know how too,
I just need to be closer to the earth right now.
They asked me why I do not close my eyes
I told them it’s because I see so much better when they are open
They asked me how I move so quickly
I tell them that I am pure electricity
It’s important t...

Pooling your heat
You are hot wires running through me
Electric as you cover
Your thin bodies wrapping themselves tightly
racing like wind to a wildfire
You are covering me in flame
Dangerous animals are fleeing these woods
as you turn figure eights
creating paths of orange and red
trails of yellow to black to ash
Heat escapes me as my temp...

Bring me someone who is fast
and maybe together we can fall
through these sleepless nights
like stars that burn out,
we will slip awkward, as we dip
fluttering like ash
we will darken the summer sky
filling it with heavy grays and whites
We will become a flash of tumbling embers,
just built to spill
Ready to turn the desert to glass
Only to s...

I am surprised to hear my voice
so bold and sure of it’s self
as if it weren’t my own
and for a second there
I have to wonder.
I listen again,
There is a distant sound
of harmony and balance,
they are bleeding together
the masculine with the feminine
It is a song
It is spilling out over my lips
But I do not si...

In fact it’s scientific

It leaves an outline
It’s electromagnetic field still glows
It’s forever connected
An aura brightly burning

With each panic attack,
I break apart,
like glass slivers,
I am falling all around
There is a crowded bus ride ahead,
an elevator door closing behind,
5 o’clock traffic and all it’s stillness
The train with it’s voice letting me know that once again,
“the doors are now closing”
I find you there, every time,

I find myself gasping for breathe
dizzy and pushing at nothing
as hard as I can
I am breathing deeply
after anxiety attack
I have let you take over my days and nights for far too long
My past has once again backed me into a corner

drink it quickly,
before it’s 8:30am
and it’s to late
Qi Gong till it’s time for more medication
Qi Gong is your medication
Medication makes you come down
Take it at 10am
Take before you go up
Before you notice you’re awake
Don’t forget your medication
Take it on an empty stomach,
That means at least four hours since...

I can’t even help it
It’s happening without trying
There seems no room for darkness
My feet are extending
are growing ever
like a pair of tubers in rich soil
The universe is funneling itself through me
There is black hole forming above my head
So I am opening up and giving back my turbu...

It was New Years Eve
when you dipped me.
You leaned in for a kiss.
I should have known then that eventually you'd drop me.
the snow fell all around
a sailor and a nurse.
After the war had ended,
she stopped bandaging his wounds,
he bellied up to a bar
the photographed just faded away.
Every night when the street lights come on,
the snow fal...

The day you left,
it rained for three fucking days
you still wouldn't wash away.
So I prayed out loud to the girls
with more grass
than that green grass
that we used to make love in.
I waited there sea sick,
in sea of emerald green
swaying back and forth
all around me.
Just then, the air pick...

Boys are like plasma
dripping back to the sea
Like metal they rust
You can smell them both erode
They tell me it’s the salt in the water
that makes them both corrode...

I have been opening the meridian lines
Stretching the lines of communication like the marks on my hips
Gaining greater understanding,
of who the hell I may actually be
I am collecting all the pieces of myself
Bits from here and there
I am putting them back together again
with tiny much needed kisses...

much faster than yourself
I am smoothed out
by the waves
your words a thousand dull lead sinkers around my neck
I can not hear you here
Here, I belong to no one,
not even myself
In fact, I do not exist
There is tranquility in nothingness,
no need for oxygen
amogst the school of fish
and soft rock
I make my...

Really, I did.
It was a sweet candied apple, kind of love
a legs wide open, love
a love that knew each and every one of my secrets.
Do you remember the night
that I wrote testaments across your body?
You a moonlite canvas pale as washed wool.
I dreamt mad Van Gogh blue skies,
wrapped up with you,

Loud, brash, sweet thing
Bring me some water to wet my whistle
Love only lasts ten minutes at a time
Only this time
The time is mine
So go on over
Lay it down
Cause all your cards ain't showin
And my hands are full
I'll drop this heavy load
When words spill soft and free
Meaning what they s...

I am hidden
I watch my father lay in the stillness
he is somewhere farther away than I have ever been
He is fixed upon the tree limbs
against the grey sky
and I am fixed upon his expression
and all those secrects that he does not tell
I watch quiety,
trying desperatly to un...

Bring me fruit in the dead of winter
as tears roll from your face.
Be sweet rebellion on hot summer nights.
Burn messeges onto thick leaves
and press them hard against my bedroom window.
Stand naked under the naked moon

The money comes from sex
The sex is last nights million dollar needle
Baby's bruised arm can't bend to stop the nose bleeds
Or fix the drippy faucet
Or fix enough
to fix the holes in the walls
Or stop this broken shopping cart ride home....

with whole body
covered in wet white chalk
stinging the canvas with her strokes
as she bends in this hot light
you swish color up
lighting the room
in soft swift movements
canary yellow floats freely and deep red

but mostly just the direction.
I think I’ll run into the woods, the next time I’m menstruating
and devour some wolves.
Or throw cotton balls at the Willamette river,
just to see how truly absorbent they are.
I’ll make a contest of it,
like the ol' school one's of...

with their last forever kisses

I sit fat,
Movement growing steadily within me
can no longer stand the quickening
building in my body
My belly swollen

They sky is covered in clouds
They say that white is the color of absence
Just like the caterpillars in the spring,
eating all the pretty leaves,
you in a swift second
stealing all the color from the sky.
Gorging yourself on all the glorious blues and golden yellows
Pink, no where...

old memories hang as heavy as these winter clouds,
I am consumed by thoughts of you.
bring visions of your apocalyptic smile.
And I remember why I left.
My bones feel that familiar ache
as does my heart.

and push m...

and let me rise.
Or each glance I throw
will burn through you
like grapefruit acid
spit in both eyes.
I can no longer take the heat,
I am dissipating like the clouds that form each morning
above the Willamette River.
Each morning they are torn apart
and left to there own foolishness.
Soon I too will be an apparition
and you will be pawing at the early...

I wonder about you sometimes,
So…. I have to keep my distance
I don’t always return the phone calls
Or get in touch the way I use to
Just like fucking strange men
Or sleeping in abandon cars
You my friend,
are not good for me.
You bring me back to who I used to be
An almost extinguished lighter flame glowing inside of me
