when i try to imagine a place for me, and for you it never becomes something i can name, i can sculpt reduced to a blurry image a wet photograph a wet photograph to pulp to pulp there’s water in my dreams i succumb every night sometimes drowning slowly sometimes in a rush i call out and i call out to no one in particular to no one in particular then i hush i hush
2.
there is a smell to your sleep it reeks of love and heart your breaths make me weak and keep me alert can’t sleep with the light on but i can with your weight alongside my backbone curving into my shape enveloped in energy the sleepiest kind your dreams are in harmony linking to mine

the beat and the throb the magma of life spilling in, spilling out, spilling in spilling out, spilling in, spilling out the binding of calm sealed up real tight breaking in, breaking out, breaking in breaking out, breaking in, breaking out i feel it in my arms as my pulse quickens a loathing of all that remains in the air when the air is the last thing i clung to before falling before falling asleep before falling asleep the breath and the break the chorus cars make driving in, driving out, driving in driving out, driving in, driving out driving in, driving out

ever since you left this plane it’s been a quieter house the tapping and creaking the sounds of you sleeping no one said goodbye to you you didn’t say goodbye to them but you are in a better place it’s what everyone seems to say they have a line they were fed and now they feed it to your empty room voiding their bowels of the phoniest vowels a quieter house is a gift, too now thoughts can be had alone a solitary moment followed by a solitary moment followed by a solitary moment followed by a...

a cord connects all so i can follow you the sun sets in the west it’s setting below me i walk upon the glare where does that place me? where do you go to? tell me where do you go to when you leave me alongside this rushing river? a cord connects all so i can follow you

feel me 12:23
i can always feel you can you feel me? like a telephone call in blood fibers lock in the thrill of being adjacent to you do you feel me like i feel you? the dirt in your nails the sweat on your hairs do you feel me like i feel you? the spit in your mouth the curve of your bones do you feel me like i feel you? the pulse in your chest the ball in your belly do you feel me like i feel you? i can always feel you can you feel me? like a telephone call in blood fibers lock in the thrill of being adjacent to you do you feel me like i feel you? i am loose in your clothes i drown in your clothes wrapped in them as if they were you do you feel me like i feel you?
