Do you want a fucking

Here is your meaning nugget.

Here’s another old one, when I spelled my name like the “e” was just eaten. Clearly a perfectionist and escapist from the start.

 

The mirror has a reflection

I prefer to play perfection

Mirrors come in small, medium and large

Oh how I love to go on the other side

The Land of Heartbreak, 2007

April 16th, 2014 § 0 comments § permalink

I just found this poem in my old email. From September, 2007.

 

The Land of Heartbreak

Dear—

I am writing from a place

Of heart break.

A thousand beats away

I lie to you

Between sheets of golden grass

Wrestling with my heart’s infidelity

As blades bend beneath my weight.

A river runs between (us?)

Separating Routine from

Discovery.

The tumbling waters drown

My apology.

At the bottom, graying with decay,

Waits a young heart.

Watery beats count

One, two, three,

Then—still.

This is the land of heartbreak.

(This heart’s on fire).

Where Am I?
