behind the walls of your inner ear

my tongue, like a cold metal key

licking the sweet apple of your skull

days of shadow and sea
 50
 
 
remember these pictures
 51
a shadow, pounding
 52
on the side of your knee

 55
of your dark sea
 56
as you buckle
 57
under a wave
 58
of endless light

and the horror of death’s echo

i still can’t get her
 76
to believe

that it was never a matter of love
 78
never a matter of choice
 79
 
 
just that the car seat

comfortable

to leave

linus inspired buffalo bill (repssst!)
 84
 
 
he had the ugliest one
 85
ever- but sometimes
 86
i’d fall to my knees
 87
bobbing at his size 9
 88
noodle like a chicken
 89
till he’d come all over
 90
my face with his
 91
sick sailor’s junk

Existence in Poetic Space
 93
 
 
out of an old red trunk

the ghost of her secrets
 95
fingers her vast spaces
 96
till she writhes and shakes
 97
into a night of descending
 98
          loneliness
 99

trembling like a needle
 101
in a smoke filled room
 102
I kissed the flesh of her
 103
tight money-junk
