light collapsing
into me, oceans
of suns.
i am alive
and with you,
in my arms
a delicate star.

and this is why the sky never ends,
and valentines flowers last only a week
before rotting and why we step in puddles
with new shoes on
and why the only memories we remember
are the ones that make us sick inside,
and why so many people fuck
but never love,
and this is why late at night, beneath the covers
as the light bulbs cool off, i feel nothing
in my soul except the ceiling fan.

there is a longing
to discover you,
each secret and scar;
to explore infinity.

i am in the center of new york city
suffocating. the skyscrapers have their hands
around my neck, i’m a sidewalk and a subway
and the sky has forgotten me. i feel the loneliness
of a billion people inside a billion cubicles
waiting for a clock without batteries to reach out
and touch
five.


(this is me when i’m not with you)

a kiss
is another way to whisper
"i’m here."

without feathers we fell.
there were notions
of grandeur
once, of feasts
of love
and blazing light
but the earth shifted.
we lay
the perfect sighs down
and stars above, we made
in the dust
a temporary home or fort
of blankets
from the skin we shed.
and now, a horizon flame.
it is time to kiss and ascend.

that shiver
you passed along,
waves
on empty ridges of skin.
come soul, kiss another,
we’re mortal
let us remember
the meaning

i’ve fallen from stars.
that’s what birthmarks are: impact-bruises—
reminders of travel and destination.
and freckles are maps, so that at the end,
when i learn the act of weightlessness,
i might find my way back to the beginning.

all i ever wanted was to find someone
who might cherish the timid resonance
of my heartbeat.
