   I'm a little hung up on that, seethere's a lot to be
said
for the minutes that i spend
sitting like an idiot
with the phone
to my ear
in silence
after you disconnect
  i was number sevencan i crawl
through the lapse
in your bones,
settle as a heavy weight
in your lungs,
so you feel me when you breathe,
like
pneumonia?
   Devious Journal Entrythe skin under the sunken eyes---eyes burrowed deep in the skull by sleep, and eyes sinkin in dreadfuls of water---is pebbly, purple, and thin.
and yet silent lips rasp and throats hum and pale skin gleams a feverish blue, saying yes, i may not be healthy, but i am not yet giving in .
one more knobble-knuckled finger pressing down a typekey or a string to the throat to the mouth of someone that loves you. one more stuttered laugh or epitaph or photograph, through a tea-strained cracked whispered voice, giving proof and asking for an alibi, asking please, please see, please love me, please see me and listen and cup the back of my neck like the wreck of the lip of your old favourite mug. i am still alive. i am still alive
   pulseand it is like fingertips
tracing the line of my spine
and how it buckles and buckles
and twists over and over on itself
and this is just a dream
it is a dream
vividity
vivaciousness
vivisection
imagine
here
a moment within a moment
between moments
and how
how light
the sky breathes.
pause. pulse.
because it is only ever
a contest to be smallest,
to wither, to shrink
between atoms and
echo myself
the peeling paint is
a symbol. i will grow.
i will engulf this world.
  NI was recorded
in clouds of ink, plumed amongst
seas
of paper;
a rogue
protostellar formation
floating in an abyss
of light.
