my last

box me up in
your finest oakwood
lock the latch so
the things that should
stay unbothered will sink
from my bones into the
soil, during the next
rain, they’ll grow and
haunt the stones, rivers
mountains and lakes with
the echoes of words you
won’t ever get to take
from me, even after
i’m gone – i’d rather
be the hum on
another ghost’s tongue
than be, some song
you once would have
sung indifferently

foul things

don’t spit them out
chew on your words
if they don’t taste sweet
across your tongue
don’t spit them out
at another’s feet
only fools munch on
the sharp blades of foul things
and believe them to be
valuable tools worth bringing
to dinner tables

pulling

i follow and the
distance grows longer
i swallow my hopes,
walk away –
you turn around
my pull becomes stronger –
yet when i try again, we miss –
not meeting – we long
for one another
but don’t belong
close like this

my sparrow

arrows, hatchets
bullets,¬†lead –
you aimed
your anger
at the sparrows
in my head –
my thoughts
always took
flight over
you, but i guess
the same just
isn’t true
for you

we use them anyway

use your words,
they say. but even
words wish they
weren’t manipulated
in such a way
to make one stay –
to sleep on someone’s
lies which cover up
yesterday’s mistakes;
instead of taking out
the knife, letting bleed out
the real truths, the real vulnerabilities
hidden in the breaths
we take quietly, and gulp down
into our stomaches, every day

KO

blushing
when your heart
punches your face
out of love

stained

if your cup holds
more volume than
your heart, you should
keep your mouth
closed from the
start. for fear
something might slip
and depart, something
foolish – that can leave
a sore mark
