We met again, in the rain this time
on bikes, in a road
with my tongue knotting, hands shaking,
the bird in my mouth, fluttering—
my knees were weak

the bike wrapped around me like an exhausted
rain pooled in my clenched lids.

A radiator clung to, I heated the bed.
You grabbed my thighs. Eyes undressed me though I was bare.

a silent signature of your lips.
I will not dance with you
in case the drink blurs your face into my dreams,
watching between Love and Like.
I will not tell you my hopes
in case you fall for those

my voice is that of a washing machine gurgling.
Let it be known!
I will not crush the stars into lanterns to light your darkness
don’t be stupid.
Nor will I mak...

The For Series
shackled, chain, body maimed,
unmendable labels gained
paranoid, no android:
illogical, fleeting, hearts-weeping,
To think of this
