-- this is appropriation
my sweet synchronicity ,
i have downed your appetite
in a bed of front teeth 

(it is morning in perth
midnight in dublin, and the noon
sun has been lost behind
a dress of mothy curtains)

do i taste of

your forethought 
of love making;

do i reek of

the weeds that 
have infiltrated

the posture of your spine?

-

you bend over
my lap a curve of guilt
and weep all night.

i collect each knob of your body
like a gift. press it to my mouth.
swallow, spit.
when i used to get sad or angry i would write to make myself feel better. now i stare at walls or curl up in bed and i don't want to do that anymore.

also, coffee. which is a drug. which isn't a drug. but it is. and it awakens me and makes me want to write for three hours.
