Astrophysics

lies under starlight
when what i need are
glorious meteorites crashing to earth

all the things i can’t say
or would mumble anyway
when all my shooting stars
are hiding on the other side
of the vast galaxy in my head

i know you can see them
& you know i know you would say
they’re all lies
but my head feels close to bursting
from a shortage of meteorites falling from heaven

& i know you know i can’t say
what i really want to say
mumbling & bumbling all my
lies under starlight

Caramel Interpretations

oh my so hilarious shadow
you take my breath away
with your crooked schemes & hijinx
until i cannot speak
my words caught like glass in my throat

oh my darling monster
my rapscallion from the underverse
it’s adorable how
you take my breath away
leaving my gasping in the dark
shaking with fear like a tree in a storm

my oh so delirious demon
sucking out all the light until
you take my breath away
& i lie down
& i curl up
& i can’t speak for drowning in better things

Fortunate

soon soon sleep so
satisfied surprise
so so soon slipped
so far out the slide
so goodbye to the eyes

lovely little vision
little looser glass

sleep so soon in deep
stymied by the sun
said zero soon soon
so sleepy when we’re done
said goodbye surprised

glossy little vision
goose a looser love

goodbye goodbye
gone sleepy out the side

Jinx

i can’t hear the mermaids singing
maybe i never could
but at least i’m half-awake

even when i’m gasping for air
clutching at photographs
trying to remember the last time i was

half-asleep on a crescent moon
drifting through kaleidoscopic
dance party at the witching hour

the same song plays again & again
every time i put fear & whiskey in the jukebox

What I Mean, part 2

know what
treeing the lingering out of might
know rosy rosy in streaked
ever ever sequence never up in stark repose
central time never never heartache
your response woke what i dream

treeing the words
to do not speak never never
never never dawn no slow down
have left alphabet words
spacetime foaming just before

with all skip trap roses
grow sense of reality
just alphabet words morn daylight
out of that
i mean what
