the truth became a weapon.

and rolling around,
he could not still the spin,

How I Will Look When I'm DEAD
How I Will Look When I'm Dead
With a waxy frown or a frozen smile,
wrapped in metal, blood for a mile.
Shorn of dignity like a fallen head,
so how will i look when I'm dead?
Grasped in a gasp, rotten with stink,
found with a towel by the kitchen sink.
Look not myself but someone instead,
so how will i look when I'm dead?
A look of fright or one of calm,
gone in the night or dread past dawn.
In some repose or as wayward thread,
so how will i look when I'm dead?
A fallen leaf, an empty stone,
A drained out lake, an empty throne.
A clown unlaughing, a bride unwed,
so how will i look when I'm dead?
A crushed in skull, a forehead of glass,
A slumping heap or twisted mass.
Found in a ditch, a couch or a bed,
so how will i look when I'm dead?
Struggled fright or saintly calm
Something to burn or just embalm.
Pale white, blue, black or red,
so how will i look when I'm dead?
Rife with meaning or merely asleep,
Frivolous, happy or silently deep.
Shiny like silver or dull like lead,
so how

winter.
  ~
there are moments when the world is too much to bear,
but winter keeps the silence rejoicing
and comforts the pain with wrapped white,
(as wedding lace) and buries
itself,
gone are the days
when meaning was ripe and waiting,
when the world seemed tiny
yet foreboding like something to fall:
out of orbit or off a plate.
here the world sleeps.
forever is tied inwards,
where underneath the errors of action
the certainty of certainty,
is but a patience.
essence is a redness,
tied to branch, sheltered by a leaf,
supported by a trunk,
grasping the soil.
there are moments
when the seed has too much to bear,
and grows.

i want to tell you…

How love changes and
becomes hard as a stone,
as elusive as dust
how we    cannot    see that lust

and terrible wanting, is often
             a young thing
that hardens over years.

and blithely        wanes,

       I want to tell you to       forget
the terrible things you may
                say
to each other   as you define
self through the others pain,

, inflicted and infected, you share
       a disease most common…

how words can only be                  forgotten
yet seldom forgiven. They must be     stored,
and hidden quickly. Treasured sweets:    melt

secrets sour     and buried
        in the eyes and their
rapid flutterings. Picture the motion

a blur     that screens and sifts, edits /
events + people – completely.

         I want to tell you
that the person you love       now
decades/hours, later tells a different
story and how you were       both

in a different place, different people
saying     similar things,
hoping    similar things,
                           but never exact
two people who no longer e)merge

completely,         the same.

I want to tell you
                 that the heart heals,
that beloved pets often die first
                   and we can’t recall
the texture of many meals. Smells, or
how they came to be.       How the

caress that cried out         in the dark,

becomes a ghost,
           a fading    .missed.    that only
visits your deepest dream/land. And haunts
the worst         when deepest lost, inside.

I must tell you that Time
                    is the cruelest        redemption.

a sentence.        a declaration.         a longing.
a regret. a destroyer.                     a repeating.
                          a repetition.
           Time is                        a reckoning,
 
        a flattener       of all that was
and will be held,      will do to us – laid flat.

As Time will never: hurt quite so smartly
nor joy revisit                   in such ecstasy

as     a person or a place,   as    a    leaving
             that shall never re turn.    A way

I want      to tell you,   re:  mind you
                              but will not.

My greatest fear   / certainty,  
sorrow,
     is that Life     not hesitates
     to        s h o w      you.

Is vomiting good or bad? I think it's not a good thing, so that's too bad. I won't be responsible for projectile food splashing!

I was planning on going up until yesterday. That was when Elaine informed me that her graduation is scheduled for the exact same time.

Sorry I won't be there!

(Good luck, by the way.)
