moon from Neponset, CA tonight - March 28, 2013
My heartbeat feels like a runaway.
My soul wanders lost in universes
my body cannot follow.
My breath is jailed in your presence;
My lungs begging for a pardon.
My eyes flash like a lighthouse in a storm.
My ears are baskets ready to catch
my name as it drops from your lips.
My past is a paper monster
my hand tattoos with a mightier sword.
My longing aches for a short death.
My future bares its neck at your feet.
An opossum came to visit my back yard today.
