Be bold child.
You are rare,
and you are
brazen light.

I miss the way it felt
when you used to look at me.
When love tasted
like lazy Sunday mornings,
and hangovers were
an excuse to eat fast food
and make fast love
until bells rang hard
and Monday came
even easier than we did.

Look at these worlds
bursting in my head,
these words burning
beneath my tongue.
Quickly whisper me
your secrets and I will
build beauty from your pain
as if I was a craftsman,
an artist, something
more than a lying fool.

I dig sharp left turns
on sunny mornings
and avoiding calls
on lazy days.
I dig a quick trip
to a dirty store
to grab ice
for drinks
at community dinners
where angry diners
are full of shit
and good conversation.
I dig long lost love
and the letters
never sent,
and anyone
who would leave
a message in a bottle.

I like dirty hearts
and restless minds,
the old souls
that have known hard lives;
the ones who cast
the most beautiful shine.

I know,
she is beautiful;
all hot breath
and pretty words,
but she has starved
her demons
for a lifetime now,
and those motherfuckers
are hungry.

You with the goddess heart
and cemetery soul, of course,
you are a dragon now.
Every ghost you have
ever loved
has salted the earth
with their comings and
with their goings again.
Breathe, woman, breathe!
Wrath and fire will shoo
the dead
to cultivate the love.

I have never seen battles
quite as terrifyingly beautiful
as the ones I fight
when my mind splinters
and races, to swallow me
into my own madness, again.

There she goes
with her restless
heart and cool eyes
crossing stars,
and pulling the moon
down again.

How bittersweet it is
to know that little
pieces of my heart
have been scattered
throughout this world
and into the next.
Taken to cities
I will never visit,
sleeping under stars
I will never see,
and waking up to sleepy
love crusted eyes
that will never again
gaze into my own.

I hope that someday
when I am gone,
someone, somewhere,
picks my soul up
off of these pages
and thinks,
“I would have loved her.”

Whatever it is
that stirs your soul,
listen to that.
Everything else
is just noise.
