Living In The City With You
a one second slow motion leading to a solidly whorled thumbrpint
a red journal behind bars drinking all the numbers in the world
a waiting for the back seat to be freed up and to sleep up
I printed my first cloud on a sheet of tide,
on the shore I wrote a book
on the shore I ate a cloud
the garage full of br ken hardware // it all doesn't work
just as well as the Congress trying to eat a g ood country // talk in other circles died
down while I wanted to feed the cat some feverish winters, so I wear the selfish cape // but you
a veranda where the grass grows, swaying
a radio heart breaking on the airwaves
a derelict apartment full of bad weather
in my dream, you see the water is rising until it
eats the bad birds // my parents in the kitc hen holding each
other with feroc ty like bur gundy curtains and singing the whole elegy of
broken a r conditioners // a still habitat, f ull of h eat
It's normal when you're in love, even more a bout of flu, I
think I am falling for the laws that govern you
and with you
and with you
an autonomous software that stamps mistakes onto 3D mountains
a dandelion salad and sugar sprinkled through one lifetime
a confessional 'I know him' in the wooden box, 'of him'
I'll make a deal with you I won't eat the peaches,
they are so chilly in the fridge.
You kiss me. You kiss me. We
plant flowers and then you kiss me. We
plant flowers and then you go in.
We looked // the other way and said, hey the coast looks a little
muddy now do you think it is safe to cross? No let's use the brid ge instead.
The le afy chair is a good pla e to sit // on thro g h the day if th re is
ho m r k to do. Th ga rd n is lined with cr y st ls and other
thi gs, like w lt d smiles. we had n o other place to p t them. we had no other way
to help them.
a clever child
a leaking faucet
one good and desperate dream
a n : you
