Necrobiome

Life is unraveling

In moments

Stoplights

Quick bites

Walls seen a thousand times before

An overdose

Harsh word

Heart flutter

Keystrokes

Ordinary

Taste our bitter loneliness

Our fucked up complacency

A soul rotting necrobiome

Toxic

Children with unwiped tears

Atomic horizon speckled and on fire

Burn the fucking asphalt down to eternal toxic hell

We’ll wander below the crumbling overhang

Of everything we destroyed

Shells

Wisps

Husks

Because they destroyed us first

Preparations

She is preparing for death

Project, errand, a slow uncoiling of sorrow

Etching into her old bones

Love falls away in ashes

Let little by little through the cracks in ones fingers

Every sunset is a reminder of encroaching dark permanence

However many candles, lamps, incandescent are set out

And she is alone

Exhausted, terrified of questions that are already emphatically answered

Time is never a friend, less now more than ever

An ancestor, visiting on delicate wings of butterflies

Birds flitting small through the summer heat

Comfort fleeting

As she weeps solitary

Everything

Crystalline shores

In the embrace of your smooth swell

And deep clefts

I hide in the sand

Lose myself amongst the grains

The repetitious song of breakwater

And sea birds, skirting the horizon

A trance to lead into transition

Below, and so it is above

Porque, todo es Dios y dios

Top of the World

A crescendo of lights and life

They wander through dim streets

Howling like wolves

Tearing away all the covered secrets

And intimate nooks

Immortal for a moment

As he lifts

And she pulls

A dance of desire

Sweet and sticky

All down from here

Into indistinguishable

What would be

A face in the crowd

A mummer of passing life

Given too soon

Continue

Chipped tea dishes, for pleasure only

A deep sky with torn clouds at sunset

How I question and murmur

Alone in my body

Where the universe closes in

Terrifying in all its infinity

So I hold tight to your hand

Sing a song to pass the worry

Take a breath

Fill my eyes with my bounty

And continue on

For Us

A deep stirring

Shaken out from a nightmare

That we have lived

And lived over

We restlessly rise

Stretch our scars until they ache uncomfortably

Remembrance of each infliction

And how it bent and broke us

A reflection of historic wrongs in every way

We rise, and rise

For us

Exist

Vast enigmatic planet
Spiderweb of vibrations
So delicate
That even the ancient trees know
Something is coming for them
I exist, here on the surface
Gazing into the bowl of the sky
Divining tomorrow in the wind
A bluster of loneliness
Among a bustle of life
Teetering on the edge of not being
As we all are
