Poetry | Mine


more faith

and more gesture

this is the end

or has it even begun?

improbable passages

map out the end of the end

my best friend

are they waking up now?

something has begun

not a stoney heart around

only the warmth

and clarity of mine

it is this that I wish for

can you help me

bear the heat within the skin

a photo lies beneath—proclamation!

can you make me happy


the ear stands awaiting

tell me the words that will

intertwine with mine

put it in the fridge to keep it fresh

don’t waste your time

we are that is distant

don’t be the outside looking in

because help within my reach

make it mine

transform the will

and let it slide in

the chance is mine

don’t cry
