By Jenna Balfe
I want to swallow the moon and let the words shine through my throat
the feeling of being so late that i am on the edge of knowing
being saved and dying the ultimate nothing take you away from your screen
wanting to know the next thing makes your heart pound louder.
We are part of a seamless moist visceral, rocky, forest laden body of existence.
The hand to the phone to the plant in the pavement harrow your bones as you contemplate
to a service for a need that you can not contend with.
take the lust out of being present.
Wet heels in the thick sex of her pavement. She is still mother, seeking payment.
Deep like a pink gum filled pool,
Wires jutting out,
drooling on top of,
out of and into the seamless pain of comfort through technology and well thought out humorous
Saw life in a fishbowl on the plane.
From the same view.
My wrists are changing
through evolution to keep typing
my deepest meaning.
Seething through all that i mean
A bursting flower
The sound of my own not my own all together name.
Seeded to the ground
Listening to the sound of all that is and all that was
The consequences of my atoms.
