In the RawI don't know what to call this feeling in my chest. It tightens like longing and burns like lust, swelling and roaring out of my mouth like rage. There is a wanting and a sadness and a keening echoing over anger as powerless hands seek to grasp something far out of their reach. Sweet and tender moments imagined in fits of contented sighs are tossed about on a dark sea and sunk as reality pokes holes in the hull of my ship. Would that I had the power to make these things real, to birth things of substance from the wisps of dreams, but the fragile creatures die and fall heavily into the void with the weight of 'how' and 'why'.
I only know how to wait. I sit in the dark before this window and wait. Until opportunity blooms, until the time is right. Minutes and moments slip by as a I soundlessly wait, a timid predator in the grass. Each one laughing in its small voice as my muscles atrophy and anticipation mixes with regret and doubt. And I hope that I haven't missed the right one.
a hospital bird with soot in her lungsshe slept through a car crash
that almost killed her,
through whitewhite walls
where her lover dies
nobody thought she'd make it
but she woke up a few months later
with flowers in her hair
and ash in her airway
trying to remember how to start all over
but forgetting to remember how to live.
fall slipped from her open eyes
and winter crawled in for a long hibernation
to her the clouds looked sick
and pale like they might
let everything inside them out,
but she opened up wide instead,
spilling blood where there was none to be spilled.
her heart slipped down the street
and with unsteady hands
she stitched in a bird and cut off its wings.
