1. Words are sacred. They deserve respect. If you get the right ones in the right order, you can nudge the world a little…

  3. Grip the wheel
    of this speeding car
    and I am sighing for you
    all over again.

    Feeling indulgent
    with that subconscious
    somewhere, my thoughts
    flit like street lights
    down this god-damned freeway.

    All there are
    are flesh and sounds
    blurring into a
    peripheral
    dead space  shrouded;
    pointless.

    You weigh so heavily
    on my mind tonight,
    my breath is caught
    in a labyrinth of dust
    as my chest aches
    to share its load.
