Better Soon

yes‭, ‬it was the fog that kept me together‭, ‬somehow‭, ‬

beaver moon and the next one

have we reached the neck of the woods‭? ‬have we‭ ‬stopped‭, ‬really‭?‬

outside looking in‭ ‬

the place of no suffering‭ ‬ ‭  

‬this is it‭, ‬divided pink light

i don’t want it‭ ‬

if it feels like i’m not running‭ ‬


so much further

home becomes the middle of nowhere

with the years bringing less to love about it‭ ‬

who were you when you weren’t with anyone‭? ‬

someone still giving a damn‭ ‬

about the myths that talked of women

as bodies as mountains and seas‭, ‬anything‭ ‬

apart themselves‭ ‬

of change always for better‭,‬

were you smiling all this time‭? ‬


things that hide

night disbanding‭, ‬crawling between the walls‭ ‬

this time‭, ‬and not this time

when i cannot reach into and feel another’s breath

stay close and know what i’ve done

restless‭ ‬

sought for the cured clearing inside my head‭ ‬

and met it too soon
