​January 7, 2017 A numbing photo Of you with A shaved head; October 2016: The conversation Was peppered With Taboo. Some are yours, Brazen, Too brazen, That even my Worldly heart Blushed in Tomatoes, And Some are mine: Veined hands, Temper, No hair. You laughed at the Way I prefer them. You asked why, “I […]

/Untitled/

​I accidentally found a note slipped In between my planner that  I stopped using ever since  I knew; you wrote a thought about  me leaving you,  But I digress.  We both knew what the  Truth would do,  You hid honesty like noose  In the persecution of  what is true,  Obtaining me, A commodity, as someone […]

An invisible thunder threading over our line of sight–   […]

Smoke Hits Ceilings
