all i want for christmas is a new reality

Saturday, 11 December 2010


I know you said nothing. twice. again.
so much nothing. but then
I caught you shaking
I caught you
and you blamed the cold
but I know it was more like the heat
or the something
whatever that was.

I know this is what happened, but I've been losing sleep
my mind wanders
and winds
over the details that meld into blur and then fade.

In the morning with the snow falling
the ground is shining through my window
and my toes wiggle the blankets to anything closer to warm
I can smell the air seeping through the cracks of the house that whistles in the wind
and it smells familiar
and not like you.

The Best Way to Know a Person

I’ve been seeing the human condition suffer from a lack
of physical contact, so they turn
to masturbating
their iPhones and Blackberries in public.

In subways and in schools,
on aeroplanes and buses,
in front of families at dinner tables, while
driving or in the movies and
at funerals.

I would like to say to these people:
"If you want to connect with somebody
so badly then
why don't you just fuck them?"

i hope your ears bleed

i am going to demand more.

don't forget,

june second. twenty ten

in the space between our words fly feeling like haphazard beings of locomotion
not yet classified as flight they are free from the talons of The Label

the deep set weight, the pressure is building and this one is not to be jumped off of, this one has a metallic structure only constructible 
in a pitch-canvas tent were the absence of vibrations are the playdough of the welder-gods 
and the outcome is something no hijacked plane can ever crash into

The muffled echoing of snow 
feet movement 
under a static blanket

the absence of sound is not silence but rather something akin to death. silence is the presence of the pure,
white and black light meeting in the embrace of joy screams, 
without noise we are rendered visible to all,
our perceptions a changeling no longer willing to live without the birthmother, returning home it shall find the silence, 
silence of a horses hooves on the bones of it’s master, 
the travelers son no longer wants to be the calling boy, he has left and will not return, he goes in silence and leaves behind…the absence of sound.

within our silence is held all the noises that were not made, not yet uttered, all the meaning that we meant, floating, 
our lips             our sense              our vocal chords 
straining, can we reach the language of the divine and return to tell the tale in the tongue of the masses, 
let us communicate under the excruciatingly inadequate noun.

write about a silence.

the genre

there was a girl. she carried herself like a woman. she talked like a woman.
she met a boy.
he carried himself like a boy. he talked like a boy.
they met late one night, somewhere no one would hear or see them.
the next morning, he woke up a man, and she, a girl.

i see jesus and judas making love

what is your escape
your filthy little whimper
the wrapper beneath the pillow
the stain on your lips
dirty nails
glowing eyes
what is your drug?

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

i hear a recording, low-poor quality (youtube gold). my fingers curl, my legs squirm, feet yearn to move, my head rolls, lolls, eyes fluttering closed i am there, all over again. the sound so full its you, pounding, thrashing until your ribs are the ones producing the beat ... beat ... beat ... all you do is pound out the bass, let it pour from your screaming mouth, the boy licks sweat from your neck, you are the dancer, the music, the throbbing writhing drug.
 you, altered, alive, no future, no past. just movement. in this moment you are the drop, the pulsing reaction, you are as full as you can be. seeping through my cracks, its coming, the explosion, the afterwards, but just for now let me have ... one ... more ... yesssssss.

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

my pupils, jet black,
engulfing the irises
take you in. suck you up.
what is your story
your moment
your pupils, jet black,
engulfing the irises
take me in. suck me up.
now, now you are mine.

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

i saw jesus and judas
making love.

coat my mouth in honey

i want to bite you
i want to watch
as your insides,
your silent bits,
seep out,
to stain the floorboards.

i want to bite you.
i want to see the movement of a cheek,
under a tingling palm become more
than could ever have been foretold.

i want to bite you.
i want you,
its temporary,
everything, everything
don't take it so seriously, there's a now
a moment.

i want you to bite me.

where i want to be


 that secret that you knew
without asking
that whisper that you heard
without listening
that love that you gave
without trying

that is why
it is you.

la vista

in the darkness of a  pocket, 
clutched in the spaces between fingers,
smuggled over a border,
mirrored in the colour of your eyes,
escaping from the moisture of my mouth.

- i try not to have expectations-

why am i scared

why do you care

So Much Happiness

By Naomi Shihab Nye

It is difficult to know what to do with so much happiness.
With sadness there is something to rub against,
a wound to tend with lotion and cloth.
When the world falls in around you, you have pieces to pick up,
something to hold in your hands, like ticket stubs or change.
But happiness floats.
It doesn’t need you to hold it down.
It doesn’t need anything.
Happiness lands on the roof of the next house, singing,
and disappears when it wants to.
You are happy either way.
Even the fact that you once lived in a peaceful tree house
and now live over a quarry of noise and dust
cannot make you unhappy.
Everything has a life of its own,
it too could wake up filled with possibilities
of coffee cake and ripe peaches,
and love even the floor which needs to be swept,
the soiled linens and scratched records…
Since there is no place large enough
to contain so much happiness,
you shrug, you raise your hands, and it flows out of you
into everything you touch. You are not responsible.
You take no credit, as the night sky takes no credit
for the moon, but continues to hold it, and share it,
and in that way, be known.

i am dedicating this to A.S.
i love you girl.
may we always be as carefree, loving and free as we were that day on the beach.

in Times New Roman, font size 12
in brackets, a stage note

in messy hand, crumpled paper
meaning, veiled, longing
fingers, as they harmonize

eyes, oh
rehearsed knee, nudges yours
trembling, fingers round your ribcage

( we -the actors- sculpt our realities from the palpable product of your imagination)

the distance of time

within the timezone
of the mushroom girl
i am left  -mapless-

within the timewarp
of the carbon emission
i am left  -lifeless-

within the timelaps
of our separation
i am left  -dreaming-

within the timecapsule
of our bodies
i am left  -hungering-

within the timepiece
of our society
i am left  -bedraggled-

within the distance
of time
i am contained.

acquainted with no one

i'll not miss you
but when i'm done
i will miss

my hair is a new length.

Parabolic whimsy

today i was a child.
i was a kid. 

i was young. 

i personified joy, innocence.

tilting, sun light, nah: sun warmth
in my hair, 
my face, 
under my arms, through my fingers, 
swirling round

rock playthings
yellow roadline hopscotch
 tightrope success

in my ears
beating, pounding

the wind, the rhythm, the sun, the lyrics.

laughing, beaming.

today i was a child.

within the breath

the organized chaos of this room is forcing me into lines, boxed shapes. the manufactured grain of the wood matches the flyeye speakers.
bands on my fingers, synthetic on my toes, structured, man-made.
the whorls of shadow, cast by my confusion don't fit in the drawers.
there are edges and middles and we make it, we create it, we place it there and expect it to be there upon our return and it is, because we are the makers. we are the water. the icebergs and this room is the ground, the mountains, aching for valleys to mediate the jagged edges, to promote the raw sexuality of the straining molecules. this is the room with the chemical paint finish. with the flat realities and legal identities. this is the room without glass portals, this is the room of our descent.
my memory knows something else. something farther away. where the whorls are lifted, memorized. in that place we impose labels, lines, but they are shaken. they are thin veils, sheer, flirty. useless. for when the dance starts, those veils fall, one-by-one, and we are left naked, exposed to our others. in the place we haven't created, we change nothing and it will always change. in this place birthmarks become continent maps. wineglasses are swimming pools for butterfly nannies, where nailpolish is a figment of the goats imagination. we are in the valleys, the left over sex-scent of carnal beginnings. we are inanimate. we are the intimate. we are there and that is us and without our veils we fly apart, our pieces finding niches. our glistening, is all the light and we are all that we can see, hear, we are the sensation of a lovers tongue, we are the tip of destruction and the definition of breathe.

there's something in my throat i can't swallow

  two is over.   i want three to be how i want it to be   (...you're left with this feeling that it happened, it's gone, and it meant [nothing]
  even though you thought it would mean something...)   [nothing] is the wrong word; i'm left with an inadequate taste in my mouth

i was thinking about treetops, high places. doves don’t perch there do they, they’re ground birds

did we make them that way, us with our pitchforks, cement pathways our crumbs?

...high places

i was wondering if you’re scared of heights, if so, how much? would you jump out of a plane [with me]?

do you prefer sweet or salty or spicy? if you had to only feel one texture what would it be?

my linear questions are predictable in the way that D means drive and daisy is yellow

why do we still have neutral in cars anyways? i don’t know what it’s used for…coasting down hills? it’s fun


we could look at each others eyes for minutes, flickering focus

‘n i feel as though i’m falling in a hole

traps set out by my mind and
i’m setting myself up to fall with overthinking panic

if the world was muted, could we live in it

lets go barefoot on sandless beaches

perch in treetops because there the highest places around

lets think of encompassing delight, because I am no longer the one who can give the light

i am the girl who bites her lip when you’re on the airwaves, the one who beams when you write to me, the one who is memorizing you, the one who is scared to show her weaknesses

i want to do everything with you
in treetops

in high places; let's see how trivial it is,
how much we live in this moment is our doing          our pleasure
