you make me write bad poetryi made you upyou make me write bad poetry by insomniaplague
from pillows and comforters
and anything that stuck
its tongue out from
and slept in
next year i will shy away
like a child
when you touch me--
if you know me
(and you probably do)
seems very in-character
but it's not like what
happened in the bookstore when
put your teeth against my ear
and everything felt
like it did last week
in the treehouse
it all seems so out of
like i am a little girl again
and pretending i know what those
funny words that taste
like soap and dirt
and what we are
it only lasts a little whileat the bottomit only lasts a little while by insomniaplague
in the desperate
sunlight & waves
cut by ships
trembling as the water
hollow bodies restless
waiting for the sun
wanderlusti was all sex and stitcheswanderlust by insomniaplague
with every color on a TV screen;
(and between me and you)
your teeth, your tongue,
your ferret-hands and knowledgeable mind--
they scared me.
the foreign worlds beneath your skin:
the contortions of your spine and
you wanted to conquer; to claim
and plant a flag--
and i--i wanted cancer
we will never grow old togetherwe will never grow oldwe will never grow old together by insomniaplague
beneath holy jeans
divine and baptised a thousand
when did the nerves
rain fallen on the hair
of cleopatra &
i didn't think about it
with ears pressed to the trees
the universe expanding
& pulling my life
in every direction
that 103 and dying
on my birthday
sounded so romantic
but less than
32 promised an eternity
AphroditeFrom the very moment my eyes beheld thee,Aphrodite by jade-pandora
Full adorned, head to toe, with shells shimmering
Was when the sun and I first rose from the sea
And yet, apparition of time glimmering,
You stepped in the surf and came naked to me;
I, who's darkly ephemeral murmuring
Would by exposure thus mockingly decree,
But it was you became my Aphrodite.

a warm blanket, your dog,
and a cup of chocolate.
