eviction

no house. a new motel:
three generations forced&squished into a single room.

the cats moan and cry here now.
rubbing hair against the wood screen door.

i tell them no one is home.

untitled 2

woven sounds of early morning,
a fleeting remembered way.
we become suddenly,
as blood hums and stars chant.

twice

you stripped my tree of its womb.
you stripped my body of its fruit.
you took, to take again.

trust

strength;
giving birth to queer existential form.
vulnerable;
gifting of a radical foundation.
the life cord extension to the next beautiful affliction.

my muse

eye through a lens. you in a one inch box.
captured time,
and again.
i took so many pictures of you.

so many faces of you.
when did i stop?

biting
at the
bit.

my teeth
mark
skin.

harder.
deeper
in.
